The coolest thing I learned about this cemetery from the segway tour is that the circles on the bricks are to keep evil spirits from coming up from the ground and just how many people are really buried in there - many many more than there are markers.

There is something about cemeteries that draws people in. I myself have visited many. In the hills in Italy, Swiss and Austrian Alps and in my hometown Prague. In Savannah, we were stroling down the street and stopped for a short visit. Prominent and distinguished people are buried here. Over a period of one hundred years. 1750 - 1850. There... More

The lore around this cemetery is fascinating with headstones and mausoleums dating back hundreds of years. Sherman's army camped out here as well - odd choice - and it is central to Savannah's ghostly mythology and 19th and 20th century history.

Interesting space, historically, architecturally, and landscape architecturally. Massive trees and interesting headstones. Nice space to stroll on a spring morning.

Did a ghost tour our GS Troop enjoyed the stores about the cemetery. Hard to believe Yellow Fever killed so many people.

Some may be confused. This is a cemetery, not a a park. It is nice to walk through and sit, but keep in mind that this is a home for the dead.

We stopped by Colonial Park Cemetery during our creepy crawl pub tour. It was dark and the cemetery it was locked, so we waited until morning and walked back to the cemetery to check it out. It was very beautiful and serene.

Free visit. Beautiful trees and interesting graves with poetic and profound sayings if you can read them. Never thought I would enjoy a cemetery.

Nice historic cemetery reputedly full, but with most of its tombstones growing legs and walking off. Some very old tombstones, however, are still in place as well as the residents.

The first time we visited this cemetery was while taking a ghost tour. This cemetery has a lot of history and the tour guide didn't disappoint in telling us stories. One tidbit of information he shared was during the Civil War, the Union army camped out in this particular cemetery and they removed many of the headstones to make room... More
