I did not know that there was a section of this cemetery dedicated to this period of U.S. history. If you are an avid watcher of horror movies you would be very surprised to find out the Oak Hill Cemetery is a top filming location...More

I love visiting Oak Hill, especially the Confederate section. Newnan was a Confederate hospital town and also the site of the Battle of Brown's Mill, a decisive Confederate victory. There are brave Confederates from every Southern state buried there.

Many old gravestones. Also, a lot of people playing Pokemon Go. It was difficult to find the entrance, many of them are blocked off.

Found some of the most interesting headstones I've ever seen. Inscriptions on many of them were well though out by family members. Also found my cousin's wife buried there. The confederate section was a nice tribute.

This is a beautiful final resting place with some of the most historic markers in the state. My grandmother and great-niece are side-by-side. It is well maintained and very peaceful.

My family is not from Newnan but we have people who are closer to us than my own family buried there. Oak Hill is a place of peace with well-maintained grounds. Often you will find families not just visiting loved ones' resting places but enjoying...More
