“Visit at dusk!”

Awesome cemetery! Visit at dusk and the shadows and sky are amazingly creepy to add to the atmosphere. It was interesting walking around and looking at all of the graves.

This excursion was right up my history-buff wife's alley!! And it was fascinating! As we entered the site, brochures were available for a self-guided tour, and even though the site itself could use a lot of "sprucing up," we definitely enjoyed ourselves. We stayed a little over an hour, and we recommend it.

Preprint guide from web and take with you, many beautiful old tombstones and interesting history, use bug spray as many mosquitoes.

If you are ever in Beaufort, cut short your shopping and spend a few minutes (or a few hours) exploring the Old Burying Grounds. Pick up a map at the Historical Center that is right around the corner. The map explains some of the more interesting headstones that you can check out in about 30 minutes but you could spend hours here if you wanted to. We have visited many times and always see something new we didn't see before. Have brought out of state visitors here of ALL ages and everyone loves it. This is a must see in Beaufort!

Easy to match up names in the Burying Ground with names on many of the historic homes in the area. Did not get to tour the grounds with the brochure available for the numbered tour. Maybe next time.
