If you like extremely old cemeteries then you will enjoy this large, old cemetery. It's well kept and there are signs to get to it and outlining the different sections. Natchez celebrated its 300th year anniversary on August 3, 2016 so there's many, many years...More

If you take your time and look around, you'll see graves of people from many different countries. These people made Natchez home. There are the graves of church bishops, Jewish sections, a Catholic section, and headstones both old and new. If you like photography there...More

This is an awesome free history lesson. The markers are well preserved. Getting out of your vehicle and walking around was really the best way to read the markers. There were memorial markers for unknown soldiers and many generational plot groups.

It was interesting but the map provided is not helpful. It does have numbers indicating where some interesting people are buried but the roads aren't marked so you don't really know where you are in relation to the burial site.

We drove thru and saw very old stones. It is beautifully kept and very historic. Saw a portion that was Masons and Some that were confederate.

Nice ride through. It's a large historic cemetery with plenty of rich history. Easy to get too as long as u stay on route and follow the signs to it.
