Go for the history, the architecture, and the peaceful grounds. There are maps for walking tours and occasionally you can get a guided tour. This is the largest cemetery in the Southeast, so bring your best walking shoes and a camera. The who's who of...More

Westview Cemetery on Atlanta Georgia is where the battle of Atlanta began. This is a little known fact that the battle started out as the battle of Ezra church. The Abbey is a MUST see. Extremely pretty! Uncle Remus, William Hartsfield the Haverty brothers among...More

A spacious final resting place which invariably takes on a greater importance when friends and loved ones are laid there. Some, all too soon.

An interesting place for a walk or a drive. A very pastoral setting. This is a very large cemetery and very active.

Many Atlanta greats are buried here, and in the summer there are concerts and bike tours to really learn and appreciate the history of this cemetery...after your visit, venture across the street to Six Feet Under or Tin Lizzy's for food and drinks!

An interesting old cemetery, in a run-down section of Atlanta. It is safe within the cemetery, but not so safe in the neighborhood around it. Very large area with heavily forested trails along the eastern edge. We have seen deer along the trails. Great old...More

Although it doesn't have the cheek-to-jowl packed charm of it's cousin Oakland Cemetary, Westview is well worth the trip west of downtown. Westview is the elegant, dignified counterpoint to Oakland's vibrant, visual-overload chaos. Westview doesn't have the multitude of statues and imposing monuments to Atlanta's...More
