It was interesting to walk through this cemetery and read all of the historical signs posted about many of the significant people who had an impact on Savannah and Georgia.

We had heard stories about Colonial Park Cemetary on tours during past visits to Savannah but had never gone in until this week. We wanted to see the colonial tombstones and feel the history that comes from walking among monuments created in the early days of our nation. This cemetery is not as big as the more famous Bonaventure, but... More

We came to this cemetery as part of our Segway tour. I wish I could remember everything our guide told us, but the thing that stood out as something I've never seen before were the headstones lined up against a far wall.

No disrespect for the people who had been buried there in the past. However, this place is not worth a visit. It lacks everything, it is small. Basically, there is nothing to see.

Close to the Cathedral, this old cemetery is one of many green spaces to explore while in Savannah. A lot of history here.

Stumbled upon the cemetery on our way to Forsyth park. Very cool to walk through and read about the history and the families buried there.

It is amazing the history in this cemetery. It was spooky in the day light I can imagine at night. That would an interesting tour to go thru by candle light at night.... just a thought.

don't miss this one. It's a tribute to the fallen from the Revolutionary War, and it's easy access if you're in the historic district.
