Doe Creek School and Cemetery

2330 Doe Creek Rd.
Sardis, TN 38371

This cemetery is located on Doe Creek Road south of Scotts Hill off of Hwy 201. It originated as a Kennedy family cemetery created just after the Civil War but later became a community church cemetery. The adjacent log church was built about 1870, yellow popular logs were hauled to the site by oxen to form the walls, later used as a school until 1949. It has been renovated and placed on the National Register of Historic Places.  The cemetery is very interesting. The core of the cemetery retains a nineteenth century appearance even though the cemetery is still in use. There are rows of graves marked with fieldstone headstone and footstones. In most nineteenth century cemeteries which are still in use these fieldstones have been removed to make mowing easier. There may be over 100 unmarked and fieldstone marked graves. There is now a Civil War Trails Stop here.
