While this would be a wonderful place to visit without a guide, we highly recommend using the cd that is available. It tells stories, points out highlights, and gives a great overview of the most amazing cemetery in about an hour.

We rented the CD from the Visitors' Center and used it for the tour! Lots of personal stories about Natchez residents! Lots of old and very interesting markers and headstones!

Because of the weather (hot) there´s no better way then going on a sightseeing tour with a CD and drive the whole thing graveyard to graveyard and listen to funny, exciting and sad stories without missing the AC in your car. Who was ideas like that ?

I don't know about other people, but I love taking photos in cemeteries. The contrast of the white and grey stone with the green lawns is strikingly beautiful. I walked through, so I didn't get the audio tour that you can take if you drive. None the less, it was great to just wander and look at some of the... More

I have already mentioned this cemetery in another post but shall elaborate. Considering the small size of Natchez the cemetery is quite large and meticulously maintained. Several nice examples of 19th and early 20th century funerary statuary are scattered throughout. Well worth a visit.

Graves going back to before the civil war. Elaborate markers, and some rather plain, all honoring thOse buried there. In a city where there were more millionaires than in nyc before the civil war it is easy to see that expense did not matter when they bought grave markers.

The B&B where we stayed had a CD that tells the background of the people buried there but it was checked out. When we went to the cemetery you had to buy a book for $10 to know about the grave sites. I wasn't interested in paying that because what do I do with the book after? They should have... More

We went here because it was recommended. We were happy we made the effort. Can you say a cemetery is beautiful? Interesting tombstones. Peaceful. On a a good day it can be a interesting walk. Must see
