Where the dead really do speak. We stumbled upon this 18th century burial ground on our way to a grocery store. Although cemetery records suggest that 300 burials are here, there are far fewer stones and many of their inscriptions are unreadable. But read of some them, learn where they originated and what they did with their lives. Kind of makes me re-evaluate my life.

We were not able to get inside, but still this was a wonderful place to stop and visit. There's a beautiful and peaceful cemetery in the back with the Tomb of the Unknown Revolutionary War Soldier. Located on one of the many beautiful streets in Alex, this is well worth a stop and look.

Nice old church - in good shape and worth the time to visit. I like old cemeteries and real historical sights and this has both.

We went off the beaten path to find this charming little piece of history. We didn't make it inside but spent some time in the little cemetery behind the church. We paid our respects at the tomb of the unknown revolutionary soldier and pondered the stories of those buried there.

We were there at 9am on a Friday and the inside wasn't open but that was fine by us. We really wanted to see the location and to go out back to see the Tomb of the Unknown for the Revolutionary War. How gorgeous! They say there are 300 people buried back there but it is so tiny that it is hard to wrap my head around that. Beautiful piece of history that shouldn't be missed!
