Savannah's main cemetery for over century, Colonial Park Cemetery has over 9,000 graves. New interments stopped in 1853, but the cemetery remained open for the public. The grounds are landscaped with local species, including trees draped with Spanish moss that give the city its mysterious vibe. The cemetery is a peaceful place for a walk; stop to read the tombstones of those that helped build Savannah.

Colonial Park Cemetery reviews
If you are in to cemeteries, this is a must stop. If you have time, it’s worth a visit. But if you are pressed for time, you can skip it. There are other better things to see in the downtown area. more »
This cemetery feels like a park. There is so much history here buried literally! Absolutely worth a visit right downtown Savanah. more »
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.
