Established about 1850

Much of the history of Augusta lies beneath these
grounds. It was the burial ground for the
Chickasaws before the first settlers. The earliest
extant gravestone is Penelopy Simmons, who
operated a hotel in Augusta and died in 1852.
First known as Crescent Hill, it was renamed
Augusta Memorial Park in 1930. In 1867, Thomas
Hough sold five acres to the City of Augusta,
W.E. Ferguson sold 4.75 acres in 1905; six acres
in 1924 and his heirs 4.3 acres in 1969.
