Bonaventure Cemetery honors sculptor, John Walz

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Three months of hard work is paying off at the Bonaventure Cemetary.

The Bonaventure Historical Society held a rededication ceremony on Sunday for the John Walz Memorial Garden.

The 4,000 square foot garden features a new variety of 80 different plants.

Chairman Lee Maltenfort says, "well, it's a recognition, it's a quiet place, a peaceful place. In about a decade when everything is grown in fully, we should have a very nice shaded area."

The Bonaventure Historical Society is planning a fund raiser for a proper memorial for sculptor John Walz.
