|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Developed in 1885 by Dilmus Lyle and Newton A Morse, this cemetery, although originally private, was established as the cemetery for the town of Austell. It was sold to the city of Austell in 1891 to become the city cemetery. Burials with date earlier than 1885 were moved here from various family cemeteries around the area.
Sometime in the 1960ís the lots became deed owned by family members through Cobb County. The cemetery is not the property of the city of Austell; although the city graciously continues to maintain it.
Cemetery is well kept and active. There are many unmarked graves and graves that are outlined in bricks or have field stones for markers. The record books for this cemetery are available at the City of Austell, in the Community Affairs Department.
