Pick up a map at the gatehouse and stroll through a peaceful and shady cemetery. Several people of note are here. We liked Eli Whitney's grave and Glenn Miller's memorial. So many interesting and beautiful stones also.

The tour guides are volunteers and know everything about the cemetary, which is one of the first interracial plots in the U.S. So many stories, that we could not hear all of them in the hour-long tour, but you can also walk around anytime without...More

Some graves -- of those of small children or those that have been washed away by age -- are very stirring and emotional for me. Others are incredibly massive memorials, statues really, and they obviously convey a story of wealth and good fortune for those...More
