Magnolia Cemetery was established in 1850 and covered 92 acres. It is the oldest public cemetery in Charleston. Many prominent South Carolinians are buried at Magnolia Cemetery. Magnolia is beautifully landscaped with winding drives and paths interspersed with small ponds and a lake. Many Charlestonians would come to Magnolia to picnic and play, as well as visit lost loved ones.
Magnolia Cemetery also contains great examples of late 19th century cemetery architecture and sculpture as well as excellent examples of iron work. Today, Magnolia Cemetery continues as one of the best and most beautiful examples of rural and Victorian cemetery design in the U.S.
