Glad we stopped here after a tour of Rock of Ages. There are many old markers and tombs here, and the granite still looks new. Take time to drive through, if nothing else; you will see some unique and beautiful works of art.

I went for a funeral and plan to return as a respectful tourist. Very beautiful carvings and memorials. A race car memorial?! Wow! Angels, columns, and every type of carving.

I went here after touring Rock of Ages granit quarry. It was amazing to view some of the interesting memorials. You can park and walk or drive through. I drove and stopped at different locations. Best of all it's free!

No. The roads are too narrow and it also would be disruptive to mourners who visit the cemetery. Cars may drive through or you can walk.
