“An iconic and gorgeous cemetery”

Bonaventure Cemetery was developed on the historically-significant site of Bonaventure Plantation. The peaceful setting rests on a scenic bluff of the Wilmington River, east of Savannah. The site was purchased for a private cemetery in 1846 and became a public cemetery in 1907. Citizens and others can still purchase interment rights in Bonaventure. This charming site has been a world famous tourist destination for more than 150 years due to the old tree-lined roadways, the many notable persons interred, the unique cemetery sculpture and architecture, and the folklore associated with the site and the people. The entrance to the cemetery is located at 330 Bonaventure Road and is the largest of the municipal cemeteries containing nearly 100 acres. The cemetery is open to the public daily from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. . The main office of the Department of Cemeteries is located in the Bonaventure Administrative Building at the entrance.

There are a few famous people buried here, but the real appeal is the beauty of the cemetery itself. Full of graceful old trees covered in Spanish moss, and many of the gravestones are works of art themselves. Just remember this is still a functioning cemetery and some of the visitors are there to grieve, so keep it respectful.

The cemetery is free and you can drive thru. We drove thru and occasionally pulled off to the side to take pictures. They do have very simple restrooms near the office at the entrance. The grounds close at 5pm. Very beautiful cemetery. I was able to take a picture of the Gracie statue.

This is considered one of the ten most beautiful cemeteries in the world and it most certainly is. Taphophiles should allow at least an entire day to visit the cemetery. Maps are available at the office which will guide you to the famous graves.

Such a beautiful cemetery. I was on a road trip on a tight schedule so I didn't have much time to spend here, and cemetery photography is one of my hobbies, so if you love cemeteries like me, you could easily spend a half a day or more in this cemetery.

We took the Tour it was Very interesting. Take the tour with a tour guide. You can do either yourself or Guide. The guide will be more informational Should you have Questions. And you can take your time off and on during the tour and catch back up Again.
