Summerville Cemetery - Augusta, Georgia

The Summerville Cemetery serces as the final resting place to some of Augusta's and Georgia's notable residents, to include past Governors, Attorney Generals, Judges, and even Confederate Generals!

On this five acre plot towering obelisks and crosses stand as a living testament to the tomb they shadow for the rest of time.  I have yet to do any research on the subject, however there must have been quite a league of stone masons to do the work on some of these headstones around the Augusta area at one time.

A common site among any graveyard in the Southern States.
