Savannah: Colonial Park Cemetery Guided Tour

3. Savannah: Colonial Park Cemetery Guided Tour

Sitting in the heart of the Savannah town grid of 24 city squares, there's an unofficial 25th called Colonial Park Cemetery, which serves as the biggest story graveyard in the whole Historic District. The grounds defy time as the oldest patch of public land one can visit in Savannah, offering you the chance to see and touch materials far older than the Victorian city that now surrounds them. On this guided tour, explore the place where every town meeting, picnic, wedding, duel, and public execution was conducted during Georgia's 18th-century founding. Discover the final resting place of General Nathanael Greene, 2 signers of the Declaration of Independence, and Teddy Roosevelt's Revolutionary War great-great-grandfather, as well as duelists, merchants, priests, paupers, soldiers, and just about every character that gave blood, sweat and tears to the early colony and later nation. See the mass graves of Yellow Fever victims, which resulted in the closure of the cemetery in 1853. Learn about the adjoining "Negro Burial Ground," poet Conrad Aiken's birthplace, the Old City Jail, dueling grounds, and the Hanging Tree. To top off your experience, find out about the fascinating ritual use of the cemetery by the area's root doctors, accompanied by eyeopening visual aides as per their shamanism.
