Old Chapel Hill Cemetery is seven prime acres located in the heart of
the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, between
the Paul Green Threatre and Carmichael. UNC-CH is the only public
university established in the eighteenth century, in 1789, and the
cemetery was formed from part of the founding land grant. The original
125 acres were last sold in 1776 for five shillings. George Clarke, a
student who died 28 Sep 1798, was the first person buried there. There
are now more than 1,600 graves and the cemetery is full. Silent
Sentinels of Stone is a good site
to visit for more information.
Regarding the "full" comment: all the lots are designated for a
specific person and it's almost full.
