Known for its charm and beauty, historic Oconee Hill Cemetery is located in Athens, Georgia adjacent to the University of Georgia campus. Established in 1856 and now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Oconee Hill is significant for its landscape architecture, decorative funerary markers, distinctive cast-iron fencing, a rare through-truss bridge, and a Sexton's House of architectural significance. The grassy and rolling terrain with woods, flowing water and scenic vistas makes Oconee Hill a pleasant place to visit and stroll among the graves of many notable Georgians including governors, University presidents, veterans, and Congressmen. Oconee Hill is still an active cemetery, and lots are available for sale.
