Sylvester Cemetery, at 2073 Braeburn Circle, began around 1838 as a family plot on land owned by the Terry family. After being neglected for generations, and being almost totally abandoned in the 1970s, the cemetery has been brought back to life by the Historic Sylvester Cemetery Foundation. But there’s still work to do. It’s time for this hidden gem to be discovered, and for the foundation’s dedicated volunteers to get some assistance. The East Atlanta Strut is happy to help.
The southeast corner of the cemetery is the perfect spot for great music. Bring lawn chairs or a blanket for the late-afternoon celebration with three great bands.
Please note: This is a rain or shine event, providing the weather doesn’t threaten anyone’s safety. In case dangerous weather disrupts the proceedings, we hope you will consider your ticket fee to be a donation to the Sylvester Cemetery Foundation and the Strut.
