Magnolia Cemetery is a historic city cemetery located in Mobile, Alabama. Filled with many elaborate Victorian-era monuments, it spans more than 100 acres (40 ha). It served as Mobile's primary, and almost exclusive, burial place during the 19th century. It is the final resting place for many of Mobile's 19th- and early 20th-century citizens. The cemetery is roughly bounded by Frye Street to the north, Gayle Street to the east, and Ann Street to the west. Virginia Street originally formed the southern border before the cemetery was expanded and now cuts east–west through the center of the cemetery. Magnolia contains more than 80,000 burials and remains an active, though very limited, burial site today.PutMagnolia Cemetery into our Mobile online trip builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

Magnolia Cemetery reviews
very nice cemetery. I wish they offered maps outside of the office for visitors after hours. it's easy to drive around on the gravel paths. There are beautiful large trees and the confederate soldier section is a nice tribute to the men who fought and died during the Civil War. Remember that they fought for what they believed in after the politicians told them they need to preserve it. Family against family, neighbors and country folks. No traitors buried here just men doing what they were told by government and dying for it - soldiers at heart.
Drove a thousand miles to find the grave of a Great, Great, Great Grandfather in the Confederate section of the cemetery. Long drive, but well worth the trip. Beautiful cemetery!
