The West State Angel

Location: West State Street Cemetery, Athens

The West State Cemetery is home to the Angel of the Unknown Soldiers, a gravestone commemorating the unidentified soldiers interred in the cemetery.

Many who pass by the angel say they’ve seen her wings flutter. Others claim to have seen her shed tears.
