The Basics

Bonaventure Cemetery is the largest municipal cemetery in Savannah and one of the most beautiful in the world. No trip to the “Hostess City of the South” would be complete without a stroll through this eerily beautiful place. The Bonaventure Historical Society offers free guided tours one weekend per month, but visitors are also free to explore on their own. Among those interred in the cemetery are American songwriter Johnny Mercer, poet Conrad Aiken, and Georgia’s first governor John Treutlen.

Savannah Bonaventure Cemetery Journey
This was my 3rd tour of the Bonaventure Cemetery, 2nd with Shannon Scott's tour company - the 1st of which was with Shannon himself, and this one was with Jessica. Hands down, his tour company is the most informative, and both he and Jessica did a great job of covering various topics, each with a bit different emphasis on some topics. I highly recommend using them any time you come out.
