About Business

Evergreen Cemetery is a 90acre cemetery located in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. The cemetery began as a slave cemetery until its owner Dr. James Maney (the owner of Oaklands Plantation), deeded a 20acre portion of his land to the city of Murfreesboro in 1872 to replace the "Old City Cemetery" which is located near downtown Murfreesboro. The cemetery is the final burial place for many notable people from Tennessee and the grounds are home to centuries old maple, oak and magnolia trees. Some of the trees pre-date the cemetery and a number of the headstones are more than 140 years old.Evergreen Cemetery is governed by a 34-member board of directors and its current chair is John Rucker, Jr. who has served on the board for over 24 years.It is located at 519 Greenland Drive and is open Monday-Friday, 9 AM-4 PM. Tours of the cemetery, presented by Oaklands Mansion, are also held each year.Confederate CircleThe Confederate Circle, a mass grave site, was established in 1890. In 1891, remains of Confederate soldiers were gathered from burial locations across the area, including the "Old Confederate Cemetery" located about south of Murfreesboro, and reinterred here. Some 2,000 - about 90% unnamed - soldiers, are buried in the Circle.The Circle is the site of several observances and memorials throughout the year for local Sons of Confederate Veterans Camps, including Camps #33 and #1355.
