While visiting Savannah, know that a little girl sits quietly posed in Bonaventure Cemetery awaiting your arrival. Gracie Watson died just 2 days before Easter Sunday in 1889 of pneumonia and the entire city felt the loss, not excluding her sculptor John Walz. Because of his skillful devotion to her making and the constant, loving touch of her fans, she has become more lifelike than any could've ever imagined. People from all over the world stop by to honor her story and memory. Many count her as a kind of unofficial dignitary for all of Savannah and she appeals to the child in all of us. A visit to Little Gracie is a visit complete. Bring a smile, a kind word, a toy or leave a donation & you're sure to have one more friend in this life and the beyond.
