Cool to visit but we could only see from the outside. The gates were closed so we couldn’t drive in and explore. Check the hours first.

Easy entrance to this well-preserved, large Jewish Cemetery dating to the Revolutionary War. Very interesting to walk among the graves and learn by reading the headstones. There is a washing faucet by the entrance as well as stones.

More than 30 confederate soldiers are buried here in a fenced in section near the front of the cemetery because nearby military cemeteries at the time wouldn't accept Jews. A number of graves date from the 1800s and are largely in Hebrew. Mostly German Jews....More
