Georgia National Cemetery at Canton Ga

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Around Atlanta

The Georgia National Cemetery is located in Cherokee County off Highway 20 between Canton and Cartersville.  The Georgia National Cemetery Canton Gacemetery was opened in April, 2006 on land donated by the late Scott Hudgens, a World War II veteran, land developer, and philanthropist from Atlanta. 

The property lies near the Etowah River offering sweeping views on the Blue Ridge Mountains and nearby Lake Allatoona.  Turning off Highway 20 one drives up a beautiful hillside setting with hardwood trees along old logging roads.  At the entrance to the cemetery is a flag plaza and shelters of committal services.  Of the 775 acres, 330 acres will be used for burials; the remaining acreage is too steep for interments.  Wonderful scenic vistas can be seen from the entire cemetery atop this lovely mountain setting.  It is a moving and peaceful place for our veterans to lay at rest. 

The 775 acre national cemetery includes 33,000 full-casket gravesites, 3000 in-ground sites for cremation remains and 3000 columbaria niches for cremation remains.  There is a spreading garden for cremation remains also. Georgia National Cemetary Entrance

Georgia National Cemetery is the second national cemetery in Georgia and the 123rd in national cemetery system.   The cemetery is open sunrise to sunset daily for visitation.  If you have not visited Georgia National Cemetery, take the time to visit soon.  You will be glad you did.
