This is a beautiful cemetery on the edge of downtown Chattanooga. The grounds are well kept and clean. The cemetery itself sprawls over and around the hilltop and down each side to the access roads.

Stunning views and maintained beautifully by the Department of Veterans Affairs. The American Flag waving with a smaller POW/MIA next to it was stirring.

What else would expect to hear about a cemetery? This site has rolling landscapes w clumps of trees, large rocks and man made coverings. The acreage is large. This is odd to say, but I learned to drive as a teenager through its windy roads...More

This was a personal visit but i do recommend passing through as the cemetery has an atmosphere of peace . It is very orderley as would be expected with graves going back to the civil war and all conflicts since.
