|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
An African American community burial ground that most likely dates back to the plantation era. Sections of the School Street Cemetery contain deep depressions and unmarked graves. Bound on the north, west and south by thick trees and overgrown brush and on the east by a dirt road entrance. As a recipient of a Preserve America grant in 2006, the City of Washington is currently engaged in spirited efforts to preserve and maintain the School Street Cemetery.
