perhaps not as "historic" as Oakland across town (1884 v 1850) nor as well known but still worth a visit. Guided tours are not currently available (I understand they are being considered) but a brochure is offered for self-guided tours. The place is huge (largest in the Southeast US) so consider driving or a long hike.
Many beautiful and ornate monuments and mausoleums mark the graves of some of the most notable people in Atlanta history and the beautiful "community mausoleum" (the largest of its kind in the world) w/ its gorgeous chapel is worth the visit alone.
The cemetery sits on the edge of one of the WBtS battles for Atlanta (Ezra Church) and a marker is at the site of the church and some other markers on the grounds make note of the battle and a large monument marks the area set aside for CSA veterans.
(note: visited as part of the Phoenix Flies program offered by the Atlanta Preservation Center)
