Pine Crest Cemetery. Located on the highest elevation of Atlanta, the first two acres of this site were formally deed to the city for cemetery use by Preston Rose Scott in 1887. The earliest marked grave, that of Esthre Fitts, dated August 7, 1878, indicates its earlier use as a burial ground. The oldest grave in a segregated area once separated by a fence, now removed, is that of R.A. Williams (d. 1880). A four-acre gift by the H.G. Goree Estate in 1934, and a land acquisition in 1984, have allowed for the growth of this cemetery where the descendants of those who developed the Atlanta area continue to honor their veterans and loved ones.
