The Gurley Cemetery is a large urban cemetery which “sits on a knoll overlooking a spot of ancient charm that once was the location of the Gurley Baseball Field”. It was established in 1880, and contains more than 1000 markers, including Veterans of all U.S. Wars and 52 Confederate Soldiers.
Come see and hear costumed characters and many more of Gurley’s storied citizens including The Circuit Rider Preacher, The Cat Lady, and The Professional Baseball Player come back to life. Also enjoy a self-guided tour of over 20 species of mature trees scattered throughout the cemetery while listening to the auto-harp/bass music of by-gone days.
