103    THE BLACK HERITAGE COMMUNITY CEMETERY

      Location - 1399 Carthage St, Sanford.

      Coordinates: 35d 27m 40.0s N; 79d 11m 40.3s W Click here for Google maps

      This cemetery was originally part of Buffalo Presbyterian Church located adjacent to this cemetery. It was used by slaves and African Americans in the county. Over the years it fell into disrepair and neglect, covered over by undergrowth and overgrown trees.

      A community action group is bringing the cemetery back to life. They petitioned to rename the cemetery used by slaves and African Americans "The Black Heritage Community Cemetery"

      The entrance to the cemetery is just past Buffalo Presbyterian church driveway, on the same side of the road as the church. Part of the entrance is paved, but most is not at the present time. If you are not careful you will miss the small entrance area.

      Many of the graves are sunken in and unmarked, but many are marked and very legible.
