Green Acres Cemetery located at 1485 Schatulga Rd., Columbus Ga. is the only private perpetual care cemetery still family owned and operated in Columbus. Established in 1953, founder George H. Less had a vision of creating a beautiful and peaceful resting place for families who live in the Columbus and surrounding areas. Since its opening, more than 14,000 citizens have been laid to rest in beautiful Green Acres Cemetery, with thousands more taking the steps to purchase their family lots in advance. The tranquil surroundings speak quietly of dignity and honor. At Green Acres Cemetery we offer burial services to families of all faiths and creeds. Green Acres Cemetery takes pride in the tradition and extensive family heritage developed over the past 70 years. Come join us in continuing this legacy. Now in our 3rd generation, we continue to update our cemetery property and our facilities to meet the needs of our families.
Managed For Perpetuity
By Law, a percentage of all the grave sales are deposited into a trust fund which is regulated by the Georgia Secretary of State. Over the years, the fund continues to grow, which means there will be adequate funding to keep the cemetery grounds as beautiful as it is now and long into the future.
