Those who love history or are simply interested in learning more about St Mary's past will find a wealth of information browsing the many gravestones of this cemetery. As one of Georgia's oldest towns and a national historic district, early settlers such as the French Acadians of Canada, French planters from Santo Domingo, notable townspeople and soldiers from many of America's wars, are buried here. A lovely landmark with old oak trees, iron fences and brick walls, there are three sections: the old white, old black and the "new" section. Quiet and peaceful, a stroll through the park-like cemetery reveals an important era of this sleepy little town. Designated parking area just outside the cemetery walls. Generally open sunrise to sunset daily. - Natasha Lawrence
Built in the late 1830s as the home of Reverend Horace S. Pratt to the First Presbyterian Church which is across the street. The size and style of the building was unprecedented in the area. The Greek Revival style home is two stories with a raised basement. Ownership changed several times since its construction, but luckily it survived the Civil War when it was occupied by the Union Army. In 1965 the property was purchased by the City of St. Marys and has since been preserved as a museum by the Orange Hall Foundation. Each of the rooms are furnished as it would have looked when it was first completed. Visitors can take self-guided tours. It is claimed to be the friendly ghost of 8-year-old Jane Pratt, who died of yellow fever, letting them know she is present. There is a small gift shop. USD3 donation is requested. Street parking is available. - Natasha Lawrence
