Engulfed by an active golf course and residing adjecent to green Number 3, Beck Cemetery in Chattanooga Tennessee risked being forgotten forever.
Beck Cemetery dates back at least to the mid-1800’s when early settlers of Chattanooga who were involved in sawmills, passenger ferries, quarries, and produce trading founded this plot of land as a family cemetery. Shortly after World War II the cemetery was damaged. It laid neglected for decades until two local residents began independent efforts to rehabilitate the cemetery and pay homage to those buried there.
Beck Cemetery contains a single memorial marker dedicated to all those who are known to be buried within the cemetery.
