Mike Westby, a reviewer, had this to say about this incredible map: "This Savannah Historic District Illustrated Map is flat out impressive on many levels. For pure utility it clearly and concisely provides the information needed to navigate, but it goes so far beyond that. The attention to detail is intriguing and entertaining at the same time, compelling the user to immerse themselves in the artwork as they explore every aspect of the map."
Bonaventure Cemetery is a public cemetery located on a scenic bluff of the Wilmington River, east of Savannah, Georgia.
