Spent about an hour wandering the grounds and looking at the monuments. Lots of history here in a beautiful and peaceful setting. Wear bug spray; the misquitoes were bad.

This cemetery is stunning during the day and night. Whether you like the paranormal or not, it is part of this cemetery. Take a walking tour during the day or stop by for photos at night.
