This cemetery is filled with historical graves and has many plaques explaining the history of those buried there along other information about the very early days of the city. It's an easy walk from the river district and a very worthwhile visit.

Walked through briefly through this cemetery. Fairly small for a historic cemetery but was well worth the visit. Very old, unique monuments here including a signer Button Gwinnett who was a signer of the Declaration of Independence. So, a lot of history here.

The cemetery is in the middle of town just a short walk from the Cathedral. It was very interesting to stroll through and see all the old gravestones.
