Search Slave Cemetery:

This cemetery is located behind the Long Creek Presbyterian Church cemetery. It is a separate entity, being kept apart by a rock wall of its own as well as an iron fence.

There is no entrance to this cemetery, one must climb the wall to access it. Most of the markers are unreadable, some just upright rocks to mark the graves.

There are easily over a hundred graves here. We photographed the biggest stones which most have either very faint/unreadable markings or none.


This cemetery currently has no photos.
