Description

This memorial serves as a memory of the former slaves that were once buried in the Freedman Cemetery. The cemetery was established in the 1860s near the settlement of Freedman's town, and many of the remains and graves were removed (or paved over) during a highway expansion in the 1940s. Finally, in the 1990s, a memorial was built on the site of the former cemetery to commemorate the former slaves who were buried here, thanks in part to the large-scale fund raising efforts by the Freedman's Foundation, which raised about $2 million to construct the memorial.
