Gulley Cemetery

This is an old family cemetery located on the International Paper Co. nursery property in the SE1/4 SE1/4 of Section 27, Township 12 South, Range 20 West. It is a small cemetery and is fenced. It was abandoned for many years until the property was purchased by International Paper and the cemetery was cleaned up. The last burial in the cemetery was in 1930.
Driving directions: From Bluff City, go southwest on Hwy. 299 about four miles to Ebenezer Cemetery. Turn left on Rd. No. 423 and go about two miles to the International Paper Co. nursery. Just before you get to the office building, a dim road to the right will lead to the cemetery. Since this is a working nursery, you will need to check in at the office first before visiting the cemetery.
