The Oak Hill Cemetery dates back to 1833. It began as a small cemetery for Newnan's Baptist church about five years after Newnan was established. A year later the Presbyterian church added a cemetery. Both of these churches are gone leaving a 60 acre community cemetery. It is a beautiful and well maintained cemetery that the citizens are quite proud of. The Newnan-Coweta Historical Society offers tours of the cemetery.
