A place to reflect

A spacious final resting place which invariably takes on a greater importance when friends and loved ones are laid there. Some, all too soon.

An interesting place for a walk or a drive. A very pastoral setting. This is a very large cemetery and very active.

My sister teaches Death and Dying so she likes to visit cemeteries. This one is very interesting. From the almost medieval looking tower when you enter (no idea what it was) to the large number of beautiful stones, the cemetery was quite interesting. Then there is the mausoleum. We were there in the bright morning sunshine, but around dusk, it... More

On vacation in Atlanta, and for some reason we enjoy visiting cemeteries. This is by far the one of the largest we have ever driven through. We knew nothing about the place and had no guidance, just drove around and observed the landscape, monuments and architecture. In a large area that is still open of graves, we came across 3... More

A cemetery on the south side of Atlanta. Oakland filled up and then came Westview. But you have to die to stay here.

Many Atlanta greats are buried here, and in the summer there are concerts and bike tours to really learn and appreciate the history of this cemetery...after your visit, venture across the street to Six Feet Under or Tin Lizzy's for food and drinks!

An interesting old cemetery, in a run-down section of Atlanta. It is safe within the cemetery, but not so safe in the neighborhood around it. Very large area with heavily forested trails along the eastern edge. We have seen deer along the trails. Great old stone buildings. In the summer or fall of 2014 we saw a movie being shot... More

Although it doesn't have the cheek-to-jowl packed charm of it's cousin Oakland Cemetary, Westview is well worth the trip west of downtown. Westview is the elegant, dignified counterpoint to Oakland's vibrant, visual-overload chaos. Westview doesn't have the multitude of statues and imposing monuments to Atlanta's elite, but it has a peaceful setting that's perfect for meandering around and contemplating life.... More

I greatly enjoyed my visit to Westview Cemetery. It's a must see for Historians. It's peaceful with it's rolling hills and remarkable statues. The mausoleum was simply stunning. The grounds are clean. Explored for hours! Thank you for all of your hard work staff at Westview!

Reminiscent of the late 18th century Gothic revival cathedrals of Western Europe - Westview Abbey, housed within the community Mausoleum located at Westview Cemetery, is a stunning reminder of a bygone era. The vision of Westview Abbey extends far beyond the exquisite craftsmanship of a chapel surmounted by ribbed vaulted masonry and lancet windows. Words like exquisite & extraordinary, can... More
