Reverend Bill Allison Memorial Cemetery - Atlanta

 
 

I stumbled on the Rev. Bill Allison Memorial Cemetery squeezed in between a warehouse and a trucking depot on Fulton Industrial Boulevard in Southwest Atlanta. I haven't been able to find much about this place, except for a few unconfirmed references to it as Potter's Field.

Arlington Memorial - Sandy Springs, Georgia

Arlington Memorial Park, founded in 1922, in what is now Sandy Springs, just north of Atlanta, is relatively new compared to most of the cemeteries in this website. It is a good example of how the Lawn or Memorial Park cemetery was developed in the early 20th century. One of Georgia's governors, Lester Maddox, is buried here.
