So sad to see how run down this place was. This place has a lot of history and would think the town would take an interest in the upkeep of it.

It was on a hill and the drive thru is a little rough. But it is worth seeing. There is so much history. You don't very often get to see such beautiful and elaborate tombstones any more.

I was impressed with the age and the generational family plots and tombs,Unfortunately, time and weather has taken a toll on many of the stones. Still, it is a historical record of many of the pioneer families of the area. Just 2-3 blocks from downtown,...More

Interest taste of jackson's history in the two-three cemeteries that run together. I enjoy walking the area and reading epitaphs. Worth visiting. Not a lot of trees, so bring a hat or go during the spring or fall.
