Oak Grove Cemetery, 1788, St. Marys

Oak Grove is among the oldest public cemeteries in Georgia.

It’s not well-known outside the area, nor does it often appear on lists of Georgia’s historic burial grounds, but it’s an anchor of the St. Marys historic district and shouldn’t be missed if you’re in the area.

This cemetery is truly a hidden gem, even older than Bonaventure in Savannah and equally interesting.

There are many early-19th century headstones in the cemetery.
