Overview

Historic Bonaventure Cemetery: Photographs from the Collection of the Georgia Historical Society (Images of America Series) by Georgia Historical Society, Aime Marie Wilson, Mandi Dale Johnson

All cemeteries are history made tangible. Each neatly laid out plot , each lichen-dotted headstone, each lovingly crafted monument, is a representation of a personal history. While each cemetery has its own collection of stories to tell, Bonaventure Cemetery has more stories than most. For more than 150 years, citizens of Savannah have buried their loved ones at Bonaventure Cemetery. Among its grounds, monuments bearing the names of such famous people as Johnny Mercer lie alongside markers bearing names of those known only to their family. Bonaventure's stately beauty seems the perfect setting for a cemetery.

Historic Bonaventure Cemetery illustrates the development of Bonaventure as a Victorian style cemetery and the transformation from a private estate to a public cemetery. Historic Bonaventure Cemetery, the first book solely about Bonaventure, includes images of Bonaventure and Greenwich - the two plantations that became Bonaventure - and provides information about the people and the monuments there.
