Georgia National Cemetery is administered by the US Department of Veterans Affairs.
Georgia National Cemetery is the second national cemetery in Georgia and the 123rd in the national cemetery system. A private citizen donated the 775-acre site to the National Cemetery Administration in 2001. At maximum capacity, 330 acres of the site will be developed for burials; the remainder of the site is too steep to be used for interments.
Historically, the site was used for logging purposes and as a hunting ground for local residents. Georgia National Cemetery is located near the site of the Etowah burial mounds, created by American Indians of the Mississippian culture between AD 1000-1550. This site is one of the largest American Indian burial mounds in North America. Archaeological investigations have been conducted on Etowah mounds for over one hundred years.
Georgia National Cemetery opened for burials in 2006, and was formally dedicated on June 4 of that year.
