Norcross City Cemetery Tour
Sunday, February 5, 2023
Join local historian Gene Ramsay for a tour of the Norcross City Cemetery, located just across Buford Highway from Downtown Norcross at 211 S Cemetery Street at the intersection of South Cemetery Street and Fairmount Drive.
Learn about the history of the town and the lives of Norcross’ founders and builders. Where do the names Buchanan Street, Jones Street, Lively Street, Adams Vineyard, Ollie Avenue and many others originate from? Have you heard of the 1915 tale about a former mayor who died on Christmas Day due to a local butcher and his new shotgun? The fires downtown in 1904 and 1908? The visitor in town who shot up the local hardware store in 1894? The prominent local lady who drove to Yellowstone and back in 1923? We will revisit these stories and many more!
