Directions: The Bethany Baptist Church Cemetery is located on Red Top Mountain and is surrounded by Allatoona Lake and Red Top Mountain State Park. According to Georgia Planters in Georgia 1832 – 1838 by Professor Don L. Shadburn, “the Cherokees established Allatoona Town in this area and many of them resided there prior to 1838”. Much of the area is now covered by the water of Allatoona Lake.
