About
This was Shannon Scott's original 1990's tour that started everything! Colonial Park Cemetery serves as the biggest story graveyard in the whole Historic District! Its the oldest patch of city land one can visit and where you'll see materials far older than the surrounding Victorian City. In Savannah's colonial hours, this is where every town meeting, picnic, wedding, duel and public execution was conducted! Eventually it would be the final resting place of Gen Nathanael Greene, 2 signers of The Declaration of Independence, merchants, priests, paupers, soldiers and just about every character that gave blood, sweat and tears to the early colony and later nation. Less we forget how Yellow Fever turned it all into a mass grave resulting in the permanent closure in 1853. Discussions also extend to the Root Doctor culture ritualism, The Old City Jail, Conrad Aiken Birthplace, Dueling Grounds and all complete with visual images to enhance the experience.

Would give this ten stars if possible. Loved this tour and Chase (Lazarus). I was the only person on the tour and it turned out to be a stroke of luck. You can tell that Chase enjoys the tour, and we spent the entire time in conversation about the cemetery, the people buried, and history. I so enjoyed the time I spent on the tour and would not hesitate to take it again. It was that good. I was fortunate to do the tour after having been to the Savannah history museum where I learned a great deal about the battle of Savannah. That greatly added to my enjoyment of the Colonial Park tour as I had a frame of reference. Chase was happy to answer questions and to explore some of the graves that may not have been part of the official tour. I only wish that we had more time together. If you are at all interested in cemeteries, history, or a little Savannah scandal, then definitely sign up for this tour.

After such a great experience touring with this company before, my friends and I jumped on the chance to explore Colonial Park Cemetery when we saw the tour come up with Shannon Scott. We got a second treat to find our guide, Lazarus Boone, had also been our guide for a ghost tour previously, and what can I say except that he is phenomenal! Lazarus does not merely tour you through the cemetery - it's a full blown performance that keeps your attention the whole way through. He's a bit mysterious as well which adds another layer to the tour because it seems like he stepped right out of the past. The tour itself was chock full of historical facts and amazing stories, set in the oldest cemetery in Savannah. Colonial Park is beautiful and has so much history in it. We've visited this cemetery many times before, but Lazarus Boone made it a completely new experience, and we were thankful to have such a knowledgeable and inspiring guide.

Nestled in the heart of Historic Downtown Savannah, this cemetery offers a peek into the lives of Savannah’s earliest residents and those who helped build our country. It was the city’s main cemetery from 1750 to 1853, until it became overcrowded, and today, it is a perfectly picturesque park and sacred, quiet space for reflection. If you set out on a walk through historic downtown, be sure to pass through this little, 6 acre time capsule, brimming with history. It’s so peaceful. And if you can, make time to book a tour with Shannon Scott Tours. No tour company in Savannah (or elsewhere) knows cemeteries better, and no other sites in Savannah offer quite as rich, layered and fascinating stories as cemeteries. Shannon is the real, local expert and master storyteller, and he trains his guides to be the best. You will be spoiled with an invaluable and memorable experience.
