Cemetery notes and/or description:
Odd Fellows Cemetery Clean Up
Odd Fellows Cemetery is located in East Knoxville on the corner of Bethel Avenue and S. Kyle St. The cemetery has been around since 1870; therefore it is rich in history and beauty. Calvin Johnson, Knoxville's first black millionaire, and William Yardley, City Alderman and candidate for Governor in 1876, are buried there. These are just two examples of the rich history that Odd Fellows holds.

However, this piece of land had been neglected for years due to lack of ownership. While the land is actually owned by several small fraternal organizations, we all own this community.

Knox County Mayor Mike Ragsdale and his Office of Neighborhoods coordinated an effort to bring this cemetery back to the beauty and respect it deserves.

We called on local businesses and organizations including City of Knoxville, Tennessee Valley Authority, Odd Fellows Fraternity, 100 Black Men, Volunteer Lawn Service, Krystal Corporation, Buddys Bar-B-Q, Food City, and KUB.
