Bonaventure Cemetery Tours

Friday, May 13, 2016
Your visit to Savannah is not complete without a tour of the beautiful Bonaventure Cemetery.

It is one of the most perfect tours Savannah has to offer. Established in 1849, Bonaventure has been described as a natural garden with live oak trees draped with Spanish moss and thousands of azaleas. Standing within this "garden" are beautiful sculptures of grieving ladies, ornately carved crypts, obelisks and statue of Gracie Watson.
John Muir; founder of the Sierra Club, spent six days at Bonaventure and wrote "the rippling of living water, the song of birds, the joyous confidence of flowers, the calm undisturbed grandeur of the oaks, mark this place of graves as one of the Lord's most favored abodes of life and light."
