It's really not your typical cemetery. Book a history tour. Margaret Mitchell and Mayner Jackson are buried here. There are also different sections of different graves here as well as a beautiful view of the Atlanta skyline.

The cemetery is beautifully maintained, with paved drives and brick walkways traversing incredibly diverse monuments. There is a large section containing confederate soldier memorials, and many...More

I've never seen a cemetery this nice or detailed. Fast and Furious 7 was recently filmed here. Wish we got to spend more time here as there is a lot of history in this cemetery as well as the people buried here.

I love to take out-of-town guests to this place. There are Civil War graves, a Jewish section and we enjoy walking among the old oak trees and imagining what life would have been like through the years. The grave stone markers are beautiful and it...More

I actually found the grounds to be very uneven so I recommend sneakers, but if you stay on just the paved areas, then sandals.
