Bonaventure Cemetery is a rural cemetery located on a scenic bluff of the Wilmington River, east of Savannah, Georgia. The cemetery became famous when it was featured in the 1994 novel Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt, and in the subsequent movie, directed by Clint Eastwood, based on the book. It is the largest of the city’s municipal cemeteries, containing nearly 160 acres (0. 65 km2). The entrance to the cemetery is located at 330 Bonaventure Road. Immediately inside the gates is the large and ornate tomb of William Gaston, a prominent Savannahian merchant.
