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.

Ellijay City Cemetery - Ellijay, Georgia

Located just a few blocks off the city square the site seems like it's miles away. The original 3-acre site, established in 1833, occupies the lowest level. Newer graves dot the hillside all the way to the top of a hill that commands a view of the entire town and the mountains beyond.
