I love visiting old cemeteries on my travels. I love learning about history and there is so much you can learn in cemeteries. We have explored many different cemeteries and monuments before. Previously, we took a trip driving through Belgium to explore the historic war memorials and cemeteries (read more about that trip HERE), and we have stopped to see cemeteries back home and now in Georgia as well.
Bonaventure Cemetery is located just East of Savannah and was originally a plantation with 600 acres and a small private cemetery on the property. The original owner sold it in 1846. In 1868, the new owner made the private cemetery public and changed its name to Bonaventure Cemetery.
The cemetery we see today is around 100 acres.
Bonaventure Cemetery is open to the public every day of they year from 8am-5pm. They even offer free tours on certain days and you can find their tour calendar HERE.
