Bonaventure Cemetery was established in 1846. It's old and overgrown in a lovely, slow, southern way. Most people know it from the book or film 'Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil', and it's just like that. Seeing as it was used as a location for the film. The statue of the girl that appears on the front of the book has been moved – no one knew she was there, on the family plot of Lucy Boyd Trosdal, but once the book was published everyone went looking for her so she's been moved to the Telfair Museum of Art.

Notable residents include Johnny Mercer, Hugh W. Mercer, Condrad Aiken, and Jack Leigh the author.

The main gate is at 330 Bonaventure Road.
