Mount Carmel United Methodist Church cemetery survey.
GPS coordinates N33 26.480 W084 15.055 elevation 935 FT
Survey date July 16, 2007.
This cemetery is located on Mount Carmel road at the intersection of North Mount Carmel road.
This church is one of the oldest in Henry County it dates back to the 1850's. The original cemetery
is in the triangle of the road across from the church and is fenced in. The newer cemetery is next to
the church. Both cemeteries are well maintained the grass is kept cut and trash is picked up.
However just prior to our survey it was learned that the cemetery had some vandalism take place.
The vandals turned over tombstones some of which broke and be headed an angel statue in the old
cemetery. We believe the new subdivision called Crystal Lake that is a golf community could be
the source of the vandalism. Part of this community comes right up at the cemetery. This cemetery
will need to be watched closely for vandalism in the future.
