Wat je gaat doen

We’ll start at the Patriot arch at the corner of the grounds where we’ll briefly get to know each other. Then we’ll stroll around to the original Lincoln gate where we’ll enter the cemetery. Using a map, we’ll explore this colonial burying ground together. I’ll walk with you along the wall of orphan tombstones, explaining its significance and origin. I’ll tell you the history of Colonial Park Cemetery as we walk to important markers and I’ll relay known details on the people those stones commemorate. I’ll take you to the duelists’ grave and describe the duels in Savannah, pointing out those who died in this historically violent ritual. Hear about and see evidence of vandalism and fire damage and neglect. Desecrated graves, missing vaults, excavation projects, and so much more. We will discuss the decency of building a city atop the dead, and focus mostly on Savannah during the American Revolution.

I’m Mr Bones! I'm a Savannah native. I have an uncontrollable love for everything macabre and eery. I'm passionate about living and making the most of my life while I'm alive. I've compiled for this tour a wealth of information on old burial customs, some interesting historical facts, and some puzzling things about this 300 year old cemetery.

Waar je naartoe gaat

Colonial Park Cemetery is a 269 year old burial ground in the heart of historic downtown Savannah, Ga. It is only five acres in size, but holds thousands of Savannah’s oldest settlers. Every ghost tour makes a point to stop here and retell a few legends surrounding the area: this tour is your chance to get the historical fact that underlies those campfire stories. **A portion of the proceeds from this tour goes toward cemetery preservation.
