Historic cemeteries provide wonderful opportunities to
study and honor our ancestors and our communities.
These memorials to past generations can tell us
about settlement patterns, family relationships,
religion, lifestyles and craftsmanship. Whether
a cemetery is well preserved or endangered, the
Alabama Historical Commission (AHC) encourages their
preservation for future generations.
list of cemeteries in the Historic Cemetery
Register is available alphabetically by county.

cemetery program provides assistance in identifying,
documenting, registering, and protecting
