I have been there more than once and never tire of walking through this cemetery. It is so peaceful and full of history and each time I discover something I missed the time before. It's a self guided tour so you can take your time wandering through history...

The old graveyard is full of history and lots of stories. Make sure you pick up a brochure so you can learn about the different graves and facts. It's quite lovely with the trees and old grave markers. Take your camera!

Lost count of the number of times I've visited. The last few times I visited, they were out of brochures that tell you about the numbered graves. Very interesting stories from the girl preserved in a barrel to the English soldier buried standing at attention facing east to England. The trees are amazing. Be sure to take mosquito spray in...

As you enter the graveyard, there is a box with self guided tour brochures that you can purchase for $1. There is a lot of history here and was very interesting to learn so of the history of some buried there.

We walked from our B&B to this historical site. The trees and azaleas were beautiful. They provide a brochure with interesting facts about some of the graves.

it is hard to believe that this was as much fun as it was. We enjoyed it very much. Just grab the map and follow along. A good history lesson.

I was passing by and decided to stop at the Old Burying Ground. It was very interesting and unique to see different headstones, the Azaleas were blooming and it was a beautiful place.

What an interesting place to visit. We visited the cemetery close to sunset, and our photos are amazing. The Azaleas were in bloom, and the trees are really beautiful. If you are a history buff or a photographer, don't miss this place!

I came here practically by accident and so enjoyed rambling amongst the flowers - especially the wisteria - and the carefully preserved headstones.
