Black Cemetery

This unnamed cemetery contains many unique headstones (including one in the shape of a lamb), some made of porcelain and a few made of cinder blocks and bricks. Domed headstones date back to 1848. Some of these feature a picture of the deceased; others have live plants under overturned jars and many have clocks set to the time of death. Several grave sites are decorated with large plants. Some citizens appear to have been buried in cement caskets with handles that are above the ground. Several veterans of WWII, born as early as 1895, are buried in this cemetery.
