Cedar Grove Cemetery
Queen and George Sts.
New Bern, NC 28560

Anyone who loves to wander through old graveyards won't want to miss this one. Statuary and monuments beneath Spanish moss draped trees mark burial traditions from the earliest days of our nation. One smallish obelisk lists the names of nine children in one family who all died within a two-year time span. The city's monument to its Confederate dead and the graves of 70 soldiers are also here. The cemetery's main gate features a shell motif, with an accompanying legend that says if water drips on you as you enter, you will be the next to arrive by hearse.

The Cedar Grove Cemetery also gained national attention in the fall of 2013 after the FOX TV show "Sleepy Hollow" filmed several scenes there.
