Crowley Family Cemetery

  • 3624 Memorial Dr, Decatur, DeKalb County, Georgia, 30032 USA
  • 8 Memorials added (63% photographed)

Originally part of the Crowley family farm, consisting of 500 acres and established in the 1820’s. Family members were buried on a hill on the property. Over the years, the land was slowly sold off, until by the 1960’s, most of the remaining land was sold for the new Avondale Mall, including the portion including the gravesite. The builders left the graves untouched, and the surrounding land was graded down to a level 12 feet below the hilltop graves, and a mausoleum was constructed around the remaining hilltop. There are 13 graves are on top of the flagstone “roof” of the mausoleum. The mall was eventually replaced by a Walmart.
