Historic Natchez Cemetery

Attraction details
Reviewed 19 February 2012

This is one of the most beautiful cemeteries in the u.s.a.
Below is a quote from the cemetery website.
"Numerous beautiful, creatively designed iron fences, benches, iron mausoleum doors, tombstones and monuments are found within the cemetery. The varied patterns of ironwork represent almost the entire spectrum of ironwork produced in America in the 19th and early 20th Centuries. Artistically sculptured markers with often-poignant inscriptions add to the unique character of the burial ground."

We spent the afternoon driving around these tiny narrow roads, stopping to look at interesting stones. There was VERY limited parking, no pullover space, but of course, this cemetery was probably not designed as a tourist attraction. Lots of joggers. I suspect the Haunted Cemetery Tour would be great here.

Cemetary tour must be super in season. Graves and overall maintenance are evident and a number of interesting people are buried here.

Wonderful way to spend the entire day, be sure to stop by the office and pick up a map so you can find all of the interesting monuments and read the stories included about those that are laid to rest here.
