  • It always amazing to learn about the history of Savannah. They have ghost tours in that you can sigh up to get more historic knowledge. Photos taken 9-13-2019.
  • Densely rich historical information and graves are well respected. Didn't like the fact that a graveyard was turned into a park where you can jog through it or take your dog to relieve itself on nearby markers but nice place nonetheless.
