Opened for burials in 1804, Memory Hill is among the most historic cemeteries in Georgia, though not quite as extensive as Savannah’s Bonaventure, Macon’s Rose Hill, or Atlanta’s Oakland. Some of the more famous “residents” here include architect John Marlor, Flannery O’Connor, magician/vaudevillian star Dixie Haygood (known as Annie Abbott, the Georgia Magnet), Representative Carl Vinson, Bill Miner (one of the last Western outlaws), Charles Holmes Herty (UGA’s first football coach), as well as numerous slaves, Civil War veterans, politicians and inmates of the Georgia Lunatic Asylum. An extensive guide to Memory Hill can be found here.
