Magill
Cemetery


 

Magill cemetery is located in the Lookout Valley (Tiftonia) area of Chattanooga. It is also referred to as McGill Cemetery. The land was donated by John Magill. This survey is a combination of a WPA survey done in 1939 and a survey performed by David Cannon in March of 2003. The cemetery is very neglected, overgrown and difficult to access.

 From Chattanoga, take I-24 West to exit 174 (the last exit before the Georgia line). Left on US41 for about 100 yards, then right on US 11 heading South. Go approximately 1.5 miles to entrance to Tiftonia Rock Crusher, which is just before a railroad underpass. The Road to cemetery is on the West side of US 11 and goes up the hill. Road is now overgrown and suitable for foot traffic only. The rock crusher road also leads to the cemetery but no trespassing signs are posted and gate is locked when the quarry is closed.
