  • This was a really neat old cemetery. The grounds were very well kept and the headstones and monuments are interesting. You could spend a good portion of the day walking around and be content...  more »
  • We went in just to see Seward and Tubman’s graves. We took a picture of the map at the entrance and that made it easy to find the plots. Well maintained and worth the trip in. Such a historical place.  more »

  • Aside from the fact that this is a cemetery, it’s a beautiful spot to walk and explore. Lots of history, much of which is steeped in mystery. Used to walk this place late at night with friends just for the thrill. Very weird vibes and strange happenings.
  • The history here at Fort Hill dates back way before European settlers came here. A former Iroquois Encamptment and fort, the great chief John Logan is buried there. Other great heros but most notably Harriet Tubman Davis are buried here. Veterans of all wars, many heros as well as government officials, film pioneers all the way to paupers and inmates from nearby Auburn Prison
