Submitter notes

This cemetery is located in the rolling hills of Northwest Georgia. It is situated on top of a hill overlooking rolling pastures and forests. Behind

the cemetery is Oostanaula United Methodist Church. This church is a white frame building with a large front porch and columns.
The cemetery is well cared for and picturesque. The Brown lot is in the center of the cemetery and is surrounded by a rock wall, large bushes

and seating areas. Benches in the cemetery have stained-glass looking tops. The cemetery has a white fence on one side and is full of large

bushes and live oaks. There are approximately 10 – 12 old crude grave markers that are unreadable. Some of these have small metal

markers with the information written on them.
