If you enjoy a stroll through a cemetery, or not; this is a really outstanding place to visit! I like to go to read the headstones to learn about the people who lived (and died) in Huntsville.
If you attend one of the special events held there, you also get to "meet" the many historical characters in the flesh while they tell their stories. Not to be missed!

Maple Hill is a beautiful place to visit. It is like strolling through the times. It is surrounded by beautiful tree's and each October they have a stroll there that you should try to take advantage off. They have character's that take through time as you walk through the cemetery. It is amazing.

We go there often as some relatives are "residents ".
Once or twice a year they have a guided walk which is very popular. Lots of history here, graves from before the war of "Northern Aggression" 1860-1865. Or Civil War depending on who has your families silver. Also graves of many famous persons and a few dogs( not allowed) but they are in there or so we have been told.
Very well maintained property. I will move there myself some day, hopefully not for a while yet!

My family loves cemeteries and this history they tell. This cemetery is HUGE and beautiful. There is a Confederate burial ground a the north end of the cemetery and there are many important historical Alabamians buried here. The cemetery is quiet enough to walk around and not hilly at all. There are graves that date back to he early 1800s.

If you love history, be sure to stop here!
