The Atlanta Cemetery was established in 1855. The first body to be buried was that of George Washington Gill. The Ladies' Cemetery Association of Atlanta was organized January 5, 1900. At that time the City of Atlanta deeded the cemetery to the association. The purpose of the association was to take charge of the management and care of the cemetery. In January 2017 the Atlanta Township acquired the Atlanta Cemetery and it's assets. The cemetery has an Advisory Board which has three members including a Cemetery Manager.
The purpose of the Atlanta Township Cemetery Advisory Board (C.A.B.) is to assist with the planning, growth, and operation of any cemeteries managed by the township by advising the Township Board concerning the proper operation, maintenance and restoration. They also recommend to the Township Board a cemetery ordinance to include rules and regulations such as hours of cemetery operation for visitors, holiday/memorial decoration guidelines, and fees for sales of burial spaces.
The Atlanta Cemetery is an active cemetery, open to all denominations. Burial spaces are available.
