Search Factory Cemetery:

Factory Cemetery is located just north of the city of Columbia, near the entrance of Riverbanks Zoo. This cemetery, thought to contain between 700 and 900 total burials, includes 31 marked graves as of the 1990's. There may be only a couple of stones remaining now. Suggested date ranges of burials are 1870 to 1930, although the duration could have been longer. It is assumed that many of the graves were factory hands at Saluda mill, which closed in 1884. Almost no written or oral history, or records of burials, for this cemetery exists. The Chicora Foundation did a limited assessment of the cemetery about 1990.

Other names this cemetery may have been known by include Saluda Factory Cemetery, Saluda Mill Factory Cemetery, and possibly New Brookland (Brooklyn?) Cemetery.
