The Bonaventure Historical Society wanted to create an app tour that would tell visitors the stories of all those buried in the Bonaventure Cemetery in Savannah, GA. By creating a mobile app tour, they were able to provide a self guided tour to visitors as well as bring in revenue to help fund the cemetery. Read more about their app.
As one of Savannah’s most visited attractions, The Bonaventure Cemetery has a hauntingly beautiful landscape and wealth of stories to tell. The Bonaventure Historical Society created a mobile app tour so that more visitors could hear and experience the stories and images at their own pace with a GPS triggered app. Many important historical figures and artists are buried at Bonaventure including poet Conrad Aiken, Academy Award-winning lyricist Johnny Mercer and Georgia’s first governor Edward Telfair. There are two apps available through the Savannah Experiences App including Bonaventure Cemetery Tour LITE which is free and has a select number of stops that users can preview, and Bonaventure Cemetery Tour ($4.99) that has the full tour of 31 stops.
All proceeds from the app purchase go directly to support the preservation efforts of the cemetery by the Bonaventure Historical Society.
