Cemetery Tours.
Historic Linwood Foundation hosts a large tour through Linwood Cemetery in October of every year. Called the Fall Ramble, this is a fund-raiser for the Foundation. This usually brings about 300 visitors to hear stories about selected families told by family members or other volunteers. After the tour, attendees are invited to partake of a delicious spread of hors d'oeuvres and drinks.

Other tours through Historic Linwood Cemetery are available upon request at no charge. Many varied groups have visited the cemetery, from elementary school classes to college-level classes; from Scout troops to garden clubs. Please call the office at 706-321-8285 to arrange a tour or receive assistance in locating graves.

Types of Tours:
  • General tour pointing out various notables and symbolism on many diverse monuments.
  • Civil War tour telling the impact the war had on those who served and those who suffered.
