Many monuments  feature ornate carvings and other symbolism.

A line of soldiers' grave markers are near the back wall.

In 1844, William James Drinnan was the first person to be interred in the new City Cemetery. 

"Just a faithful little dog" reads this tiny marker for Pug, the only dog in the cemetery. 

The oldest marker in the cemetery: Nancy Phillips died in 1808 and was originally buried in the City Park, now Hurkamp Park. The marker was moved to the new Fredericksburg City Cemetery.
