Plenty of historic markers about the lives of those buried here. Great place to learn something & honor those who reside here permanently. Also cool to know that the playground outside the cemetery served as the dueling ground in years past.

It's amazing to see how old these tombstones are. They are from the 1700 & 1800's. The stones are worn away, but many of them you can see the years. It's worth stopping by.

Looks like something straight out of the 1800s. Nice shaded sidewalks for strolling through the trees.

Interesting historic cemetery. You can go in it. It is free. Right next to it there is a strip of land that they say people used to use it for Dueling.

Get the back story from one of the many trolley rides or tour books, but be sure to check out the headstones along the back wall! Just a few blocks from the Cathedral.

This is an old cemerery from the Revolution War. Time has erased most of the gravertones incriptions which is a shame. The cemetery is fenced with one entry.
