" This Frederica is a very strange place; itwas once a town-the town,the metropolis of the island."Francis Anne KembleVisitor to Frederica1839

Here, in unknown graves more than two centries old,lie many of the early settlers of Frederica. Althoughthe town they created did not survive, they helpedto lay the foundation for what would become theState of Georgia.

General James Oglethorpe, governor of the colony,passed this cemetery often en route to his plantationoutside of town. The noted Clergymen John and Charles Wesley presided at funerals here.

Please help to preserve the fragile ruins at Frederica by not walking on them or disturbing them.
