History

Bonaventure Cemetery was developed on the historically significant site of Bonaventure Plantation, on a scenic bluff of the Wilmington River, east of Savannah. The site was purchased for a private cemetery in 1846 and became a public cemetery in 1907. Citizens and others can still purchase interment rights in Bonaventure.

The cemetery has become a world famous tourist destination for more than 150 years due to the old tree-lined roadways, the many notable persons interred, the unique cemetery sculpture and architecture, and the folklore associated with the site and the people. The cemetery was a focal point in the book and movie, "Midnight In the Garden of Good and Evil".
