If you enjoy visiting cemeteries for their historical purpose, this is worth the visit. There are actually three cemeteries side by side. We found the Sisters of Mercy who died in 1854, while nursing the citizens of Charleston inflicted with Yellow Fever. A peaceful place...More

This is such a beautiful cemetery, so much history can be found here. There’s also a sadness that comes from seeing all the children’s graves. It’s a nice place for a quiet and peaceful walk.

This place was memorable with such a step back into history. We really are thankful that we visited the cemetery and paid our respects.

After going to see the Hunley, we decided to visit the cemetery to visit the graves of the crews. Amazing! The old oaks, Spanish moss hanging down, the ornate mauseleums and headstones. The cemetery is located in a marshy area and there are small islands...More

South Carolina and Southern history in every square inch of this lovely cemetery. After touring all the house museums and taking the Historic Charleston Foundation walking tour, I could appreciate this cemetery so much more. History matters, and this is Charleston history.

Went to visit graves of the brave men from the CSS Hunley. Great photo opportunities with huge bent trees and old tombstones. Watch out for the alligators!

This very atmospheric old cemetery is peaceful and beautiful with much history to share. Wander through the trees dripping with Spanish moss, stop to read the tombstones, see the graves of the crewmen from the Huntley, watch the birds swooping over the ponds. Definitely worth...More

The transit (CARTA) runs from the city to Cunnington Street but there are no tour buses allow in Magnolia Cemetery. You would have to inquire with the shuttle service as to what they offer.
