  • My best friend is resting here it's always clean and always beautiful long live joel
  • The tours are really informative and worth while
  • I've been buried here for about 65 years. Great place to rest. I don't have any drainage issues because I am on the highest point of the cemetery. I am related to the Robert E. Lee family - come by and visit.
  • Large amounts of history right in our own city!
  • Jesse Helms final resting place is conveniently located, for those who wish to pay their respects from the front seat of their Suburban, 10' from the central road through the cemetery.
