DeKalb Traveler: Westview Abbey and Cemetery Tour

February 7, 2023 10:00 AM

*Open only to DHC members*

Westview Cemetery has been serving Atlanta and the region’s surrounding community since 1884 with beauty, dignity and heritage. Our community’s rich tradition and history is beautifully preserved among acres of towering trees and winding roadways. Families representing all religions, cultures and walks of life have entrusted Westview Cemetery to preserve their unique family history in a tradition of compassion, integrity and excellence.

As one of the largest nonprofit cemeteries in the United States, and the largest cemetery in the Southeast with hundreds of undeveloped acres, Westview Cemetery will continue to provide future generations a place of beauty and respect to treasure the memories of those who have gone before.

Westview Cemetery is truly a historic place, for many of Atlanta’s pioneers are interred here.

In 1943, construction began on the Mausoleum and Abbey under the watchful eye of then president, Asa Candler. DHC members will tour the Abbey with the Director of Administration, Jeff Clemmons.
