Though I wouldn't really classify it as a "Sight & Attraction", a visit to the graveyard is a moving experience. The headstones are set up beautifully to preserve the memories of those lost. As a primary rescue base during the Titanic disaster, many families let the bodies of loved ones remain in Halifax to be buried. The graveyard contains the headstone of a 2 year old boy whose body was never identified until a dna testing technology made that possible a few years ago.

For those who are fans of the movie, a "J. Dawson" is also buried at the site. Apparently after the movie came out, hoards of teenage girls would place flowers at the crewman's grave.
