“Be Careful!”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

We enjoy visiting old cemeteries looking for late 1800 stones. While the cemetery was "gothic south," it could have been a bit more cared for. Please watch out for LARGE falling live oak limbs. If you are at all familiar with Spanish moss draped old oak trees you know what I'm talking about. A branch fell about 30 feet from where we were standing. There was a tremendous cracking sound followed by a earth shaking thud. Needless to say someone could have been seriously hurt by this act of nature.

“Stone that tell a story”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

The gravestones tell wonderful stories. There is the couple who were born in the mid 18th century and died in their 80s. The father-son gravestones that tell of a 17 year old boy dying and a father dying 4 years later at the age of 49.

“Beatiful & a bit eerie!”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

An old cemetery shaded by giant oak trees draped in Spanish Moss. Beautiful views, interesting tombstones dating back to the early 19th century. Old south at its gothic best.

“Dissappointed”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

The only problem we had was the gates were locked and there was no sign to indicate what time the cemetery opened.
