  • Tour North Carolina’s oldest rural cemetery. The eloquent epitaphs and symbolic funerary art tell stories of those who lie beneath, and bring them to life for the living. The graves represent veterans from all wars and all branches of service, politicians, artists, architects, writers, developers, merchants, planters, fraternal order members, exporters, immigrants, victims of Yellow Fever epidemics, wives, mothers, infants and children, and a female Confederate spy. The information area at the main gate has copies of a self-guided walking tour of the Cemetery's areas of interest.
