Westview Cemetery Tour

Join Dogwood as we tour an amazing local location few even know exists. In 1884, several leading Atlanta citizens purchased 577 acres to open Westview Cemetery, the largest civilian cemetery in the Southeast. The rolling terrain, part of which was a site in a Civil War battle became the final resting place for more than 100,000 people. Prominent locals buried here include Grant Park namesake L.P. Grant, author Joel Chandler Harris, High Museum benefactor Harriet High, Coca-Cola founder Asa Candler SR,and Haverty's founder J.J. Haverty. The cemetery’s Westview Abby mausoleum is the largest structure of its kind built under one roof, with more than eleven thousand crypts. Italian marble lines the halls and stained glass panels and canvas murals adorn the beautiful Romanesque chapel. Half the property is undeveloped and burials are still being performed today. The park like grounds are often used by locals for jogging, walking dogs, and even picnics! Several movies and TV shows have been filmed on the grounds and have used the Abby as a European backdrop. Jeff Clemmons, author of a book tracing the complete history of this treasured necropolis will give us a tour of the property and its many notable sights. After touring Westview, we’ll take a short drive for lunch at the Boxcar at Hop City. After lunch you can return to explore more of Westview, the ground provide a nice backdrop for car glamor shots, (without grave sites!) or take a walk on the Beltline, located next to the restaurant. After driving past the cemetery front gate, follow the road back to the Abby, there is a large parking lot. We will meet under the arch. If it rains, bring an umbrella.
