Bonaventure

Bonaventure Cemetery was developed on the historically-significant site of Bonaventure Plantation. The peaceful setting rests on a scenic bluff of the Wilmington River, east of Savannah. The site was purchased for a private cemetery in 1846 and became a public cemetery in 1907. Citizens and others can still purchase interment rights in Bonaventure. This charming site has been a world famous tourist destination for more than 150 years due to the old tree-lined roadways, the many notable persons interred, the unique cemetery sculpture and architecture, and the folklore associated with the site and the people.


Savannah offers many attractions for the history buff including daily canon firings at Old Fort Jackson.  Spend an afternoon learning more about Savannah’s history in a walking tour or venture into the night and explore the mysterious side with a ghost tour.
