|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Sharon Baptist Church cemetery is located on Hamilton E. Holmes Pkwy near its deadend into Martin Luther King Drive. It is just south of the railroad on Land Lot #205, 14th district Fulton County. The church itself was sold years ago and has been rebuilt as Faith AME Zion. The cemetery is located just adjacent to the church parking lot and to the right as you face the church. The only access is through the church parking lot. The cemetery is fenced but is in very poor condition. Much of the information comes from the cemetery survey done in January, 1931 by Atlanta Historian Franklin Garrett. The first known burial was of Benjamin F. King in 1869.
If you want to visit, it would be a good idea to contact the church first as there is a barrier to auto traffic at the parking lot entrance.
