The African - American Section
On the forward slope, just beyond these cedar trees lie the graves of some 300 African Americans from 1833 to the present day. Some are known, and many others remain unmarked. Sadly, most of the people are unknown due to the lack of gravestones and markers.
In 2021 the city conducted a Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) survey through this large section of the cemetery. The results revealed between 220-260 unmarked graves. These unknown burials are now identified with the aluminum discs you see on the ground, which indicates the location of an individual laid to rest beneath.
