OLD TOWN (MARION) CEMETERY
Marion County, SC

(Partial)

Location:
The Old Town Cemetery is located directly behind the Methodist Church on the corner of Arch and Oak Streets and was used as the town cemetery until 1886. Descriptions in early deeds refer to "public burying ground with brick wall" and there are many markers with dates from the 1830's.

In 1879, the Phillips property, adjoining the original lot, was purchased by the Marion Cemetery Association to protect and develop the cemetery. In a deed dated June 14, 1977, the City of Marion accepted the ownership and responsibility for the upkeep of the cemetery after descendants of earlier lot owners raised $10,000 to be held in trust for perpetual care.
