|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Owned and operated by the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County government's Utilities Division, New Evergreen Cemetery was opened in 1944 to replace the old Evergreen Cemetery which was removed due to the expansion of Smith Reynolds airport. The old cemetery was located on the private property of James Foy, a prominent African-American farmer. 700 graves at the old cemetery were moved to the new Evergreen Cemetery, but a number of graves remain in a wooded area at Smith Reynolds Airport.
The office which serves both New Evergreen Cemetery and Woodland Cemetery is located at New Evergreen Cemetery and is open from Mondays - Fridays, from 8am until 4:30 pm.
