Bonaventure Cemetery Walking Tour
Get out of downtown and visit one of the most beautiful spots in the Savannah area with a 6th generation local historian at the wheel for an inside look at The Hostess City.
Join me and explore the lives of notable inhabitants like Academy Award-winning songwriter Johnny Mercer, philanthropist Mary Telfair, as well as the tragic tales of poet Conrad Aiken and Gracie Watson. We also delve into Victorian era funerary practices, monument symbolism, and macabre tales of Savannah's past. All fact and no fiction, although we do get to the bottom of some of the area's myths, legends, and lies perpetuated by charlatans and the scripted part-timers.
