Do your friends find you odd for exploring old cemeteries? Well, consider Shannon Scott and his talented storyist crew your kindred spirits to be & Bonaventure your future addiction!

Lots of people can give you a tour of Bonaventure but can they truly tell you its stories? There’s a reason there are 1000s of glowing reviews of Bonaventure Cemetery Journeys! Since 2002, as the first on-site storytellers, Shannon Scott, and his storyist crew have been revealing the surface history of Bonaventure, but also its hidden aspects, many of which are even unknown to locals with family buried there! You’ll be regaled in 18th century Bonaventure Plantation history all the way up to the “modern” 1846 cemetery one and stories up to present day! You’ll learn about funerary burial and art traditions along with the lost art of symbol carving and how its the language of cemeteries. Hence you’ll hear much about Freemasons & other Secret Societies! Naturally the tour loaded with fun and inspiring tales about Johnny Mercer, Conrad Aiken, The Jones Family and of course, everyone’s favorite guardian angel, “Little Gracie” and we do her story up like no other in town! For fans of Midnight In The Garden of Good & Evil? Look no further this is definitely your tour and inside of “The Garden” from the title itself! Less

This tour is basically a living classroom!

Stories will prompt a laugh, evoke empathy, awe or even cause the listener to shed a tear. But mostly, Bonaventure the place, and Shannon’s tour will have you coming back for a lifetime!
