Cemetery notes and/or description:
Evergreen Cemetery is a historic African-American cemetery in the East End of Richmond City, Virginia, dating from 1891. Notable African-American Richmonders including Maggie L. Walker, John Mitchell Jr., A. D. Price, and Rev. J. Andrew Bowler are buried there. Much of the privately-owned cemetery is completely overgrown with kudzu or is returning to forest. The original organization responsible for the cemetery, the Evergreen Cemetery Association, made no allowances for perpetual care in its charter. In 1970, the association sold its more than 5,000 plots to Metropolitan Memorial Services, which soon went bankrupt. A group of African-American funeral-home directors later bought the site at auction.
