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.

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