We find cemeteries, especially in the south, to be mesmerizing and help us understand local history. We are always awed by the epitaphs and scope of lives in rest and this cemetery did not disappoint.

This is a very large and very old cemetery overlooking Natchez and the Mississippi River. It consists of both the Natchez city cemetery and national cemetery. The grounds are immaculately kept. The narrow one way streets can be a challenge, but are worth the navigation.

We went to the Natchez cemetery on the suggestion of the owner of the B&B where we stayed, and were very touched by the solemnity of the area, its cleanliness, and the history (by US standards) that are evidenced there. Worth an hour or two...More

This is a large cemetery that you can drive through. Warning though, the roads are narrow with some sharp turns that maybe hard to navigate in large vehicles. You can stop at the visitor center and pick up a driving CD that gives you a...More

Could have spend a full day exploring this old cemetery. The ironwork alone was a feast to the eyes. Take notice of the trees, some are absolutely beautiful, massive with unusual bark.

We came to Natchez for the burial of a beloved family member at this historic cemetery on the bluffs above the Mississippi River. It's a beautiful, peaceful and very serene place. We came all the way from California and it was our first visit here....More

We drove to the Natchez Cemetery and marveled at the beautiful fences and monuments there. Although crowded, the cemetery provided us with many examples of funereal art. There wasn't enough time to view it all!

Park like setting, the narrated tour CD is a good historical perspective of Natchez; CD available on loan from some lodging locations, or may be rented or purchased from Natchez visitor center.

I found the cemetery beautiful but it wasn't a highlight of my visit to Natchez. Maybe this is because I didn't purchase the CD at $20.00 however, it just wasn't something that I was willing to spend that much money on. Sadly though, if you...More

I really do not know this answer. If I were you, I would contact the Natchez Historical Society. There is a small building that I think is staffed during the week. We were there on the weekend, so could not tell you the... More
