History

Laurel Grove North Cemetery is located on the west side of Savannah on a portion of the former Springfield Plantation. Named after the native laurel oak trees which once inhabited the site, the cemetery was developed in 1850 when the Old Cemetery (Colonial Park Cemetery), the Old Jewish Cemetery, Potter's Field, and the Old Negro Cemetery approached capacity.

Laurel Grove North is unique in that the interment rights to all of the available cemetery lots were sold out during the Victorian Era, and, as a result, this park-like cemetery probably has the highest concentration of Victorian period cemetery architecture in the Southeast. The 67-acre cemetery was designed around a natural ravine and included a large Central Green with curving roadways. A Keeper's House, Porter's Lodge, Gazebo, and Public Holding Vault were built by 1853, and these historically-significant structures are used by today's Department of Cemeteries.
