Cemetery notes and/or description:
Located downtown, Richland Cemetery was one of the first

African American cemeteries in the City of Greenville.

It was named after Richland Creek, a branch of the Reedy River.

The property was deeded to the City of Greenville by

Misses Elizabeth and Emmala Jones, who were matrons

at the Anne Cigar Company. They deeded over to the

City two lots located at Spartanburg Road and Richland Creek

and Cemetery/Tanyard properties.

Today, the cemetery is approximately six acres in size and includes

over 1400 documented grave sites.

The graves date from the late 1800s up to the present.
