Search Morris Village Cemetery (State Hospital):

Morris Village Cemetery has been in continuous use since 1922 and until 1966, received only African American patients. It is located directly beside the Farrow Rd. facility. This cemetery was used after the hospital stopped using the cemetery on Slighs Ave in 1922.

The grounds are fenced and a memorial stands at it's entrance. Almost all of the gravestones are visible and intact. It is believed there are over 2,000 burials here. It is also known as the "Village Memorial Gardens." This hospital was part of the state hospital in Columbia, but known as Palmettos State Hospital, then later Crafts-Farrow State Hospital.

This cemetery is on the grounds of an active state hospital and is not accessible to the general public. Photos are not allowed to be taken on the hospital grounds. Security officers enforce this restriction.
