A very interesting trip through history, especially to see the range of different types of monument interspersed with the trees festooned with Spanish moss

I love cemeteries, and this one was super old! We couldn't even read the headstones! Just lovely, gorgeous, serene. So quiet and nice. Perfect weather in April!

Interesting to see the stones that were changed. A lot of history in a few short steps.look for the wall of stones that were moved off their grave sites. Beautiful view of St Johns Cathedral.

Very historical cemetery. For history buffs, indeed worth a visit. See the monuments located at edge along wall. I believe they were moved by Union soldiers to make space for camping there. Read about it before stopping by.

I have never seen so many historic markers in one place. You could spend all day here just reading the markers. These were people that made our country great.

Wonderful place to visit. The history here is amazing. Some tombstones are so old that time and the elements wore off any engraving. It's a free, small cemetery. Easily accessible and within walking distance in the historic part of town. What was amazing to me...More
