Cemetery

A Beautiful, Historic Area

Cemetery Sweat Monument

In 1930, Warren P. Ward, author of "Ward's History of Coffee County," described the Douglas Cemetery as one of the most beautiful in South Georgia. Contributing to that beauty are Italian Cypress trees more than 50 feet tall and beautiful, historic monuments.

First Burial

The first burial in the Douglas City Cemetery was David H. Kirkland (1835 to 1865), owner of Kirkland Store. A walk through the historic area of the cemetery, located in the northeast corner, gives you a sense of pride and helps identify community pioneers.
