There are maps available at local stores to guide you through the quirky oddities of the cemetery. It took us about 2 hours to walk around and see the sights. Granted, that was with children. There are many odd stones to see and many of them have a sense of humor. The cemetery is old and some stones are cracking, breaking, uplifting, etc. With flooding a major concern, many of the burial vaults, tombs, etc. are above ground. Items such as Roberts' "I told you I was sick" headstone, military memorials, vampire vaults, and one unidentifiable stone (a tree has grown around it) are just a few of the sights to see. If you are looking for a nice walk or bike ride, the cemetery is a change of pace.
