THE OLDEST CATHOLIC CEMETERY IN GEORGIA

Listed on the National Register for Historic Places, Locust Grove Cemetery is the first Catholic cemetery in Georgia.

 

In 1790, Catholics from Maryland made their way to Georgia and settled in this lovely, remote spot, building a log cabin church and a burial ground for their community.

 

Today, the cemetery remains a beautiful place for prayer and contemplation. A Mass for All Souls Day is held in the cemetery on the Saturday closest to All Souls Day each year.
