Fitzgerald’s Evergreen Cemetery is one of the nicest and well maintained publicly owned cemeteries in the state of Georgia.
Public Works' duties include but are not limited to maintaining and mowing 86+ acres of cemetery space.
Mr. Neal Poole, the Cemetery Supervisor, is available to help locate plots and aid in preparing final resting places. If you bring plants or flowers to your loved ones site, we kindly request that you Dig 'em In to keep them from blowing away.
For information on securing a burial site, carrying out a burial, and improving a burial site, please visit the Community Development Evergreen Cemetery page for these guidelines and rules.
Evergreen Cemetery is also an important historic Civil War site. It is the final resting place of the oldest Confederate veteran in Georgia, General Sherman's drummer boy, and the man given credit for the capture of Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederacy. Learn more about its history by taking the self-guided Evergreen Cemetery Tour. Hours of operation are 7am till dusk.
There are also several annual events held at Evergreen Cemetery, including the Confederate Memorial Day Ceremony and the Holocaust Memorial Service. American flags mark the sites of veterans in honor of their service for Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Veteran's Day holidays.
