The cemetery is amazing, the time periods in which those who are laid to rest there lived were the most important in our great country's history. Definitely a must see!

This cemetery is maintained so very well that you might think you are in a military cemetery. Very quiet, rolling hills, peaceful and spiritual. I love visiting cemeteries and this one is a highlight! The friend that we were with has family buried there so it was even more special!

Our walk through part of this historic cemetery gave one a sense of the history of Natchez. Could have spent a longer time reading the inscriptions on the headstones.

No trip to Natchez is complete without a visit to the Historic Natchez City Cemetery. The grounds comprise over 90 acres and it is full of amazing history.

The best entrance to take is the third (main) one off Cemetery Rd. It leads to an office building that supplies brochures in the outside mailbox. The brochures provide a layout of the cemetery.

We decided to remain in the older historic part of the cemetery. No parking was provided and we pulled our car as far as we could off the narrow road that ran through the cemetery.

My favorite part was the Confederate burial area. And the nearby Turning Angel burial area. The Angel monument was erected by the Natchez Drug Company over the graves of employees who were killed in the explosion of the drug company in 1908.

The cemetery is a very quiet and serene place to reflect on the lives of all who are buried there. The cemetery opens at 7:00 AM and closes at dusk. Admission is free.
