Since opening in October of 1884, Westview Cemetery has become a historic centerpiece in Atlanta. Some of the city’s most well-known residents rest at Westview, including the founder of Coca-Cola, Asa Candler, author Joel Chandler Harris and Atlanta Mayor William B. Hartsfield.

Westview remains the largest cemetery in the Southeast and one of the largest nonprofit cemeteries in the United States. Nestled west of the Georgia Capitol along the south side of Interstate 20, the property encompasses 600 acres, 27 stained glass panels, winding roadways and towering trees.

Self-guided drives and bus tours, by reservation, are available on select dates.
