We borrowed the cd for the guided tour. It took about 1.5-2 hours with stops and had some interesting characters. Would also liked to have just walked around but cemetery is so large it would be hard to do.

This was a very beautiful, peaceful cemetary. There are very many different types of headstones and crypts. We were most taken with the wrought iron fences surrounding some of the grave groupings.

This cemetery is interesting because of its setting and the variety of people at rest there. Spanning a couple hundred years, its residents represent early French, English and Jewish citizens. A section is devoted to fallen Confederate soldiers. And people are still going under: there...More

Sheltered by the trees we wandered paths to family crypts and graves protected by beautiful ornamental ironwork. Have you ever noticed how peaceful cemeteries are? Siblings together forever and no bickering. The stones tell familial stories.

Just a historic setting with a well kept cemetery. Lots of history in this cemetery, and it was very well maintained.

So interesting !!! The B&B we stayed the night before let us use a tape about the special people buried there. Such fascinating stories. Be sure to get a tape to listen to while touring the cemetery.

the cemetery full of history and the sections are well laid out. the office has maps for a self guided tour, or they have a guided tour at certain times. lots of confederate tombs with the confederate cross.

For a cemetery enthusiast there’s plenty to look at. The variety of monuments is staggering. A lot of history to be discovered. It’s a real maze of pathways. Get there in plenty of time to roam around....gates close at dusk.
