Be sure to either have a guide, or get the CD tour of the cemetery to put in your car CD player - it's fantastic!

My sister and I attended the Angels on the bluff here. There are over fifty thousand people buried here, of all races, religions and cultures . Great for history lovers. You can stop by the visitors center and purchase a CD to play for a driving tour. Very interesting!

While we were not able to spend much time here, we quickly appreciated how much history the cemetery represents. The cemetery is very large, beautiful, with stunning views of the Mississippi River from Jewish Hill. Certainly a place worth visiting if you have an interest in the history of the region.

Worth the time to drive/walk through the cemetery. Most headstones and family plots from 1800s. Creepy with the mossy oaks.

Not sure how to rate a cemetery except to say that historic Natchez cemetery is serene and beautiful and worth a casual walk of an hour or so. Would maybe have been better to do some homework first so as to learn more of the history of those interred there.

I recommend renting the CD that takes you through the cemetery. It gives you a history of several graves throughout. If you love history and the people that lived in years past it's a must. Beautifully landscaped gardens.
