Angela will be guiding you on a tour of the cemetery and pointing out the images from the tombstones and discussing their symbolic meanings and what stories they tell us about the people they memorialize. Fayette County was founded in 1821. The earliest birth date that I have found of the residents of the cemetery date back to 1764. There are residents from the Indian Wars, Civil War, and World Wars. The cemetery is still in use today.
We will park at the Fayette County Board of Education which is right next to the original entrance of the cemetery from its founding in 1823, and the start of our tour. As with most cemeteries, this one has a lot of uneven terrain and very few paved walking areas. We will be stepping up and down and around family plots. Please wear appropriate shoes.
An address you can google is 200 Stonewall Avenue W Fayetteville, GA 30214 . This will put you close enough to tell where to go and park.
