Cemeteries of the World: The Eerie, The Beautiful, and The Quirky

Maybe you never really get to know a place until you see where they lay their loved ones to rest.

Savannah’s Bonaventure Cemetery has the kind of image that enters your mind when you think of cemeteries: a serene expanse of land with wispy old trees caressing tombs, crosses, and stone angels blanketed in moss. Opened in 1846, this active 160-acre cemetery rose to prominence when it was featured on the cover of John Berendt’s 1994 novel “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.” It also made an appearance in the book’s film adaptation directed by Clint Eastwood. Today, guided tours are organized by the Bonaventure Historical Society to educate visitors about the Southern Gothic graveyard’s heritage.
