The Perry Area Historical Cemetery Tours, also known as "Echos of Evergreen", is a walking tour dedicated to honoring the local community leaders and keeping the History of Perry alive. Single and Group tours are available upon request. The Perry Area Historical Society also offers Historic Downtown Perry TRAM tours for groups.

 A large number of the early pioneer families of Houston County, Georgia have chosen Evergreen Cemetery as their final resting place. There are many prominent judges, lawyers, politicans, businessmen, and war veterans buried at the cemetery, now spanning a period of 170 years.  Also, there are at least 130 Confederate veterans buried throughout many sections of the cemetery.  Some of these graves are marked with only a small stone inscribed with "C.V." and the name of the veteran.  Often, the first name is marked with an initial, and there are no birth or death dates listed.
