Very interesting place to visit and stroll around. Lots of old cemetery markers and statues. The downside is that it is in a homeless persons area, so I strongly recommend going only during daylight hours and only in groups.

This is a must-see for cemetery lovers and history buffs. The "roads" are narrow and you can just imagine horse and carriages coming thru here in another era. Beautiful and a great place to spend some real time to peruse the many wonderful headstones.

Great Old Cemetery to visit, but be warned of the homeless and trash left there.... I have always wanted to visit this old cemetery, but was leery after reading about the homeless being there and how litter was everywhere. We went today and it was...More

After visiting the adjacent National Cemetery, this old historic cemetery containing resting places of many important local and state people was disappointing to say the least. Firstly, the grass needs a good cutback, then there is the trash just left around the site by people...More
