well preserved, serene. There is some signage but much better with a guide to explain the historical aspect.

Not a lot to see but I appreciated the guide display explaining its significance. Humbling anytime one visits a cemetery.

A must stop to see some of Exuma's history and beautiful natural landscapes. Rolle Town is a rather sleepy and peaceful village full of friendly neighbors.

Its a small burial ground with very old tombs in the ground. Stickers everywhere but we really liked being able to walk around and see it.

Our tour guide brought us here on our way to the Tropic of Cancer beach. It was very interesting to learn a little of Exuma history. The tombs date from the late 1700's.

Sorry, we ran out of there. The mosquitos were vicious. So, I can't say that much about the tomb. I'd like to know more about the mother and child buried there because it sounded interesting; but I must say that the tomb was from the 1800s. We have older graveyards in Manhattan. Still, it might be interesting if you go... More

The solemn tombs lay tribute to a family from the late 1700's. Interesting graveyard, epitaphs and tombs of a mother and child.

We had met another couple and spent the day with them driving around visiting beaches. He wanted to make sure to visit the tombs. It's worth the visit to see something that has survived several hundred years and the Exuma people take pride in their history.

Not much to see and information is spotty but a nice place if you are on your way south. I would not drive JUST to see this spot. If drive past this, there is another cemetery at the end of the road with a beautiful view.
