Colonial Park Cemetery reviews
We stopped here multiple times for a walk. Very clean and well kept. It does lock up at 8:00 so if you are looking for an evening stroll, keep the hours in mind.

Was for sure different to walk thru one of the oldest cemeteries. It does show you how things were done so differently.

Very interesting cemetery to visit. There are historical marker signs that allow a very informative self guided tour. Many interesting and notable figures buried here. A section in the back of the cemetery is lined with marker that couldn't be replaced after the cemetery was used for a camp by Union soldiers. Unfortunate how many Graves will never be marked properly.
good ole historic cemetery, was interesting to walk around and see all the old coffins. some of the gravestones are so tarnished that you cant even read it, but thats old history for you!
