Established in 1833, Oak Hill Cemetery is a 60 acre property with over 12,000 gravesites. Located just a few blocks north of downtown Newnan, it is the final resting place for some of the county’s most prominent citizens which include two Georgia governors, and several congressmen.
Newnan was a hospital city during the Civil War, and Oak Hill is the burial ground for 270 soldiers representing all Confederate states.
Oak Hill is also the resting place for soldiers from the Revolutionary War (James Akens & William Smith), as well as soldiers from World War I, World War II, Vietnam, and Korea.
Self-guided tour brochures are available at the Coweta County Convention & Visitors Center located in the historic courthouse.
