Confederate Cemetary of Lewisburg reviews
It is right by the Old Stone Church. Lewisburg has a very walkable downtown. You can also see Carnegie Hall and other historic buildings. more »
Interesting cemetery with not a huge amount to see but the graves in the shape of a cross and a couple of headstones and a plaque to read. Definitely worth a stop. more »
Interesting enough. Well kept and pretty area, but I wish there were more information on the historical significance. I feel like I don’t know more than before even after visiting.
Beautiful place (very offbeaten path) serene and a great way of preserving history.
