Several folks have come into the Bonaventure Cemetery over the last few months asking where to find the Grim Reaper statue. While they may have expected a bit of a hunt, they weren’t expecting to make a trip to Germany!
The Grim Reaper Statue is in Melatan Cemetery in Cologne, Germany and was sculpted by August Schmiemann.

After a little digging I may have found the root cause. It looks like a photo of the Grim Reaper was used in a blog by Tom the Traveller in a post written about Bonaventure Cemetery.
This was followed by a Pin at Pinterest with the wrong location, which has been Re-Pinned multiple times.
So while we have lots of amazing statues, this isn’t one of them. Stop by and see us sometime, we are a must add to any Savannah, Georgia trip.
