Stocked with History all around. So interesting to hear about the Cemetery - took a tour and found out about sooo many people who were buried there.
This is a very eclectic cemetery with lots of unique grave stones and statues. The main draw is the statue and tribute made to Francis Scott Keys. There is also a small exhibit and information sign. Worth seeing.

Along the fence driving to the right is a sad row of Conferate soldiers buried during the Civil War. Traditional Cemetary with every variety of marker and stone. Main entrance has a computerized list of burials and plot locations. Good for genealogists.
