Colonial Park Cemetary: Savannah, GA

I love me some old cemeteries!  Colonial Park Cemetary is located in the historic district of Savannah, GA.  This old cemetary was the primary public cemetary for the area from 1750-1853.



These pictures are of the wall in the cemetary. The City of Savannah Dept of Cemetaries website describes the wall saying, "Over the years, many changes and repairs have been made to the cemetery’s eastern wall, the only section remaining of the 1796 surrounding wall. Most of the gravestones attached to the wall were either ‘orphans,’ displaced during the years of neglect, or markers relocated in order to construct park pathways." It is unknown where most of these grave markers should go, so many were placed on the wall instead.
