Multicultural Diversity – Colonial Park Cemetery is a great example of the tremendous ethnic diversity of Savannah in the mid 18th and 19th centuries. Major exceptions include African-Americans who were restricted to the old "Negro Burial Ground" farther south until they were given their own cemetery at Laurel Grove south. French, English, Spanish, German, Irish and other nationalities are well represented and the stories that accompany each and every single person buried there are utterly fascinating -- not to mention the hundreds of Yellow Fever victims buried in a mass grave. Additionally there are thousands of unmarked graves located within the cemetery gates -- and outside of the gates under the sidewalks, streets and medians. We always love to take our guests there on our ghost walks and multicultural history walks.

A stroll through this shaded graveyard yields unique insight into Savannah's history. – In Short
Savannah's primary burial ground between 1750 and 1853 is worth a self-guided tour. Many of the city's important historical figures are buried here, including Button Gwinnett, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. You'll find the graves of prominent Savannah business minds, governors, publishers and inventors. Years of neglect and vandalism have led to the destruction of many tombstones. Hundreds of stones are missing, while the inscriptions of others are worn or have been altered.
