Orangeburg Cemetery

When it was chartered in 1889, the cemetery became the first non-church owned cemetery for African-Americans in Orangeburg. Many African-American residents of Orangeburg are buried here, including Johnson C. Whittaker, one of the first African-American cadets at West Point, and Robert Wilkinson, a president of South Carolina State University.
