This is a great place to do rubbings and see different styles of grave markers.

The best time to go is when they have their ghost tours. It costs 5 dollars. They have reenactors... read more

The best time to go is when they have their ghost tours. It costs 5 dollars. They have reenactors through out the cemetery that tell the stories of the famous people buried their and their impact on the town. There are soldiers from the Civil...More

We love to visit old cemeteries. While this does have some very old graves, this cemetery needs some major TLC. It is in very bad repair. Almost all headstones broken, fencing around family plots broken. We've been to many older cemeteries that have been kept...More

We've been to lots of old cemeteries all over the south. This one has a nice feel with the large live oaks & Spanish moss. It looks like a movie set or giant Halloween spread. Lots of mangled, rusted fencing & broken/leaning tombstones. I bet...More

This is one of the oldest cemeteries, with graves in the early 1800's. Lots of statuary, lots of old family plots with ancient wrought iron fencing. Certainly worth a stroll.

One of the more interesting cemeteries we've visited. Lots of history, with tombstones dating to 1810. There is a walking tour pamphlet that shares the history of many of the folks who are buried here. Many Confederate States Army veterans, numerous folks lost at sea,...More

This historical cemetery is rich in history but could use some upkeep. Hopefully it will get the care it deserves soon.

The historic Chestnut Street Cemetery is one block from my house. I recently took part in the annual Spring Ghostwalk and portrayed the ghost of a person buried within the cemetery fence. I never tire of walking among the headstones among the Spanish moss draped...More

I was in Apalachicola over the 4th of July weekend and was walking to the Pig when passed the Cemetery and decided to check it out. Being a history buff I was fascinated at how old some of the grave stones were and how short...More
