|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This perpetual care cemetery has over 9,300 burials and room for many more. The property is beautiful and well kept with an office at the back of the location. Flower service is available for those buried.
During the Civil War 1861-1865 the property was that of the McCord Plantation, and the home that was on McCord Plantation was named Stately Oaks. At that time the plantation was 140 acres. Stately Oaks was the home (after it was enlarged) on the movie of "Gone With the Wind' which premiered in the mid 1930s. There are some unknown graves under the Magnolia's where were located on the plantation property, thought to be workers of the plantation. Also of interest, Confederate troops camped out on the property during the war, as did Sherman's troops during his march to Savannah.
Later, the property became a golf course, and the current office building was at that time the Club House.
Sherwood Memorial Park is currently 42 acres.
