Oak City Cemetery

101 South Broad St
Bainbridge, GA 39818



Before the establishment of Bainbridge, the Oak City Cemetery site had long been home to an Indian Village. It was established as a cemetery in 1853 when William H. Peabody was buried there. His grave is located next to the powder house, where gunpowder was stored during the Civil War.

In 1878, the west section of the cemetery was deeded to Temple Beth-El and became one of the first Jewish cemeteries in South Georgia. Miriam Hopkins, a famous Broadway, movie and television star from the 1920s-1950s is buried there. Hopkins was nominated for an Oscar and has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Marvin S. Griffin, the 72nd Governor of Georgia is buried in the cemetery, along with numerous unknown Confederate soldiers.
