Savannah Ga

COLONIAL PARK CEMETERY SAVANNAH GA Featured on TV's "The Scariest Places On Earth" an episode which discusses a mythical man-beast named René who had supposedly been imprisoned at the Cemetery and had been accused of killing a couple of children whose corpses wound up at the site. It definitely places high on the morbidity scale: Colonial Park Cemetery is either Savannah's oldest or second oldest cemetery (depending on the source), founded in 1750 and used as a burial ground until the 1850's It is the final resting spot for over 700 victims of the 1820 Yellow Fever epidemic and was the site of numerous fatal duels It's the resting place of many notable Georgia citizens, including 5 governors and several Revolutionary War soldiers Colonial Park Cemetery was used as a campground by General Sherman's Soldiers during the Civil War.

Noticed the oddly shaped crypt, These crypts were built in the shape of a bed (with the headboard to the right), to imply everlasting rest. Typically each of these crypts held an entire family - buried one on top of the other.
