Owned and operated by the City of Savannah, this six-acre public cemetery is the oldest intact municipal cemetery in Savannah (and existed before the Bonaventure Cemetery that was made famous in the novel, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil). Originally known as the Old Cemetery, it served as the public cemetery from 1750 to 1853. Among the notables buried here are Revolutionary War hero General Nathanael Greene, Button Gwinnett, one of the three Georgia signatories to the Declaration of Independence, and General Lachlan McIntosh who led troops in the 1779 Battle of Savannah. - Natasha Lawrence
