It is often said a visit to Bonaventure Cemetery is one of the best experiences in Savannah. The Bonaventure Historical Society has released a mobile guide for touring the cemetery! We realize not everyone can take advantage of our monthly tours where participants learn about the history of the cemetery, its inhabitants and Savannah itself.
The Bonaventure Cemetery Tour contains 31 stops and is narrated by some of Savannah’s most notable citizens!
Take a leisurely stroll and learn about Bonaventure before it was a cemetery, the stories of the many families buried here and the many interesting ways folks celebrated death during the Victorian era.
The Bonaventure Cemetery guide is a great guide while in the cemetery and also a way to learn about Bonaventure from the comfort of your home as well!
The free guide, which provides a sample of what you can expect will still be available via the Savannah Experience app also available on Apple or Google Play. For those who have already purchased the full tour through Savannah Experiences you will still have access to your current version of the purchase.
The small fee charged is used to directly support the preservation efforts at Bonaventure Cemetery.
