Madison in Morgan County, Georgia — The American South (South Atlantic)
Madison Historic Cemeteries
Twentieth century cemeteries emerged as for-profit ventures. In 1904, Fairview Cemetery (across RR left) opened offering single gravesites as well as family plots and perpetual care service until passing into city hands in 1926. Madison Memorial Cemetery (entrance left), started in 1958 as Morgan Memorial Park, Inc., developed as a lawn cemetery -- popular for uniform flush markers, lack of vegetation, and ease of care. The property became a civic Cemetery in 1979.
