History of Hamblen Memory Gardens & Mausoleum
The story of Hamblen Memory Gardens begins in 1955, when Fred Meyers purchased the site of the former Drinnon Farm. In October of 1955, Meyers opened the cemetery’s first garden, naming it Christus, which consisted of about 1.5 acres. Later that year, George Spearman and David L. Boyd purchased the cemetery and ran it until the spring of 1982.

When Mr. Spearman and Mr. Boyd ran the cemetery, seven more gardens were opened and a mausoleum was built directly in front of the cemetery. The mausoleum was built to accommodate 192 burials. Later, more additions were added to accommodate a total of 320 burial spaces. The cemetery was sold in 1982 to Davis M. Auton. Mr. Auton was the owner until 1993.

During Mr. Auton’s ownership, another mausoleum with cremation niches on both sides was constructed. Four more gardens were added, including the Veterans Field of Honor. In 2000, a mausoleum that included a large chapel area with side-by-side and true companion crypts was built.

The cemetery consists of 12 gardens including the Veterans and Masonic gardens. There are 44 acres developed for ground burial with an additional 12 acres that are undeveloped.
