From her birth home just across the railroad track on Gilbert Street, Mazie Whitfield Nelson watched the growth of downtown Smyrna from a village of less than 400 when she was born on New Year's Day in 1890, to a community of over 20,000 when she died. In her youth, downtown flourished as the commercial center of an agricultural economy. From 1905 to 1945 it was served

Marker Reverse:
by the Atlanta Northern Railway electric streetcar. Her self-published recollections, "Past Present and Future" chronicled significant events in the town's life, including tragedies and experiences like the arrival of the first car. She was a school teacher, insurance saleswoman and the town librarian. The archway over the entrance to this cemetery was funded by contributions she collected.
