On the history of Evergreen and Woodland Cemeteries

02/24/2013 10:56 AM by

Woodland and Evergreen Cemeteries are both historic African-American cemeteries that were once premier burial locations for local African American elite.

Over the course of years, both cemeteries have fallen into disrepair and are in need of community support to restore them to their former glory, and honor the legacy and memories of those buried within them.

Please join the Woodland and Evergreen Cemeteries Restoration Project on Sunday, February 24th, 2pm at the Virginia Historical Society (428 North Boulevard) for an information session on the history of these cemeteries, their current status and how the community can be involved in additional efforts to improve and restore these significant historic sites.

For additional information, please call 804/643-4702.
