Old Burying Ground - Beaufort, NC

Creepy!

We went over to Beaufort to find a horse and carriage to take a tour around the historic part of the city, but didn't see one. When mom was driving around, we saw a very old looking cemetery and stopped to look.

We saw a few pretty tombstones that were covered with toys and play jewlery and ribbons. When we got home, mom looked online to find out more about them. One of the ones with all the toys on it was a little girl that died at sea and her father brought her back in a rum barrel to bury her at home instead of at sea.

A lot of the ones we saw died in the 1800's. I didn't see any ghosts :(. The sign also said that it had a lot of soldiers burried in there. It was pretty creepy but fun to look at the dates.
