The Athens Cemetery is maintained by the Athens Cemetery Association, a non-profit organization whose purpose is to maintain and preserve our historic cemetery. The Board of Directors of the Athens Cemetery Association is dedicated to being good stewards of the funds provided to see that the cemetery remains a beautiful sanctuary for reflection, meditation, and a celebration of past and future generations.

Costs to maintain the cemetery are ongoing and continue to increase. Likewise, the cemetery is self-supporting and does not receive financial support from the city of Athens nor Henderson County. The challenge is being met through lot sales, interments, special donations, and planned giving arrangements.
