(Note: The information on this site is updated quarterly.)
In 2009, the City of Valdosta was awarded a Georgia Historic Preservation Fund grant by the Historic Preservation Division, Georgia Department of Natural Resources, to produce a Geographic Information Systems (GIS)-enabled web site to be used by family members, historians, genealogists, and anyone interested in learning about the generations of Valdostans laid to rest at the city-owned Sunset Hill Cemetery. This innovative resource creatively combines technology and City history, and is a valuable archive of historical and genealogical information, available to anyone with Internet access. Additionally, this site serves as a convenient source of cemetery information regarding hours of operation, cemetery etiquette, purchasing lots, and other information useful to citizens. This site was developed through a partnership with the Southern Georgia Regional Commission’s VALOR-GIS program.
The City of Valdosta also recognizes and appreciates the dedication of Ms. Louie Peeples White and Mr. Harold Bennett for nominating Sunset Hill Cemetery to the National Register of Historic Places.
