Quitman’s first cemetery, West End was established in 1859. It has the inviting park-like atmosphere typical of Victorian cemeteries and is a nice place to walk around. When I was here, the camellias were in full bloom, providing nice contrast to the Spanish moss hanging from old oaks.
Seventeen unknown Confederate soldiers are buried near the rear of the cemetery.
The grafted camellias are a highlight when they’re in bloom.
