Approximately 30 people joined Buckhead Heritage for its annual tours of Harmony Grove Cemetery as part of the Atlanta Preservation Center's Phoenix Flies--a city-wide celebration of living landmarks. Founded in 1870, the cemetery stands as a reminder of Buckhead's origins as a rural farming community and helps tell the story of Buckhead's religious and ethnic heritage.
In 2006, the Buckhead Heritage Society began a comprehensive restoration of the cemetery, which had suffered neglect for decades. For more information on the work of Buckhead Heritage at Harmony Grove Cemetery, click here.
