The cemetery is almost a history lesson--families gone at the same time, inscriptions that make you smile, as well as expensive crypts, tombstones, gated plots, or nearly illegible time-aged stones. Always a place for us to visit. Pick up a brochure at the gate to...More

Well, it's a cemetery so you know what you're getting yourself into. There are gravestones and sarcophagus' layered throughout the grounds like in New Orleans. What makes it so interesting is some of the captions that have been inscribed on a few of these stones....More

Check their website for docent-led tours. We self-guided and appreciated the different sections of the cemetery, the greenery, and the humor. "I told you I was sick" tombstone and the mari-gras style beads on one monument. Good diversion from t-shirt stores and conch fritters.

There are tours available of the cemetery where relatives of some of the buried are on site to talk about the history. I passed by a group while walking around and was wishing that I would have participated in it. Many unique plots and verbiage...More
