I tend to gravitate towards cemeteries, as most genealogists do. I don’t have any roots in the Savannah area, but that doesn’t stop me from haunting the local cemeteries. I visited Bonaventure a couple of times. It has quite the mysterious mood to it. The spanish moss draped across the live oaks. The old stones and fenced in family plots. It’s a neat place to drive around (I didn’t walk, because I had kids in the car.)
As much as I liked Bonaventure Cemetery, I think that I enjoyed my stroll through Colonial Park even more. The cemetery is dotted with historical markers along with the gravestones.
I wonder how old this one is!
I just love the old stones.
The scenery throughout the area is beautiful too.
I think that this is the part of the cemetery that I love the most. The back wall is covered with broken stones.
Too bad I don’t have any ancestors buried here!! Do YOU?
