Overall a good visit to be had full of myth, mystery and history. I made my visit to the cemetery on a sunny Sunday morning. At the main entrance you will find the cemetery office building which was closed at the time of my visit.

Our Son treated us to the 2 hour tour and what a unique experience. Our tour guide was informative and very entertaining, she kept our group engrossed with her stories. I never thought of touring a cemetery but all in our party thoroughly enjoyed the adventure.
