Colonial Park Cemetery , meticulously maintained by the city, offers a glimpse into the early days of Savannah. Notable graves are well marked by signs. No admission fee is required.

I visit this cemetery every trip to Savannah. Beautiful, serene, peaceful. Great history. And you can see the St. John Cathedral from here.

This cemetery had many unusual above ground family tombs. There are monuments and graves of many important historical figures. The gates close at 5pm, so don't get locked in.

The cemetery is a great place to learn about history. They have signs up to tell you the history about the city and cemetery. The grounds are well maintained and its laid out nicely.

You can walk to this cemetery (unlike Bonaventure). It is quite old. It is interesting to search for the tombstones that the Union Soldiers "modified" while they camped there. They changed the dates with their bayonettes - what else was there to do? They also...More

We walked through on our way to St John the Baptist Cathedral. Very interesting and well kept considering the age of these burial plots. Worth walking through!
