      Location - 9305 Holly Springs Road, Holly Springs, Wake Co., NC.

      Coordinates: 35d 40m 56.0s N; 78d 47m 14.0s W Click here for Google maps

      Surveyed by Shirley Olson on December 10, 2001.

      Directions - from downtown Raleigh: Take Hillsborough St. (SR 3007, becomes Hwy. 54) to Jones Franklin Rd. (SR 1319) Go South to the stop sign at Walnut St. (SR1313) Continue across Tryon Rd. (SR 1009) to Holly Springs Rd. (SR 1152), continue South, cross SR 1010, continue South 2-3 miles to the church on the left side of the road.

      Until recently this area of Wake Co. was predominantly African American and rural. It is in the process of dramatic change with an upscale country club and expensive homes changing the landscape. This African American cemetery is the property of the church. Records show a 1900 building date on 2.91 acres. The cemetery is not laid out in any practical manner. There are some graves near the front of the cemetery, another 2 rows of graves a little distance further back from the road and to the left of the front burials, another 2 rows semi-shielded from view by some trees further back and then a scattering of graves in the rear. Many of the graves are marked only by funeral home metal plates, some have lost their letters. There are other graves with no marker of any kind. There is plenty of room for more burials. At the bottom is a list of funeral homes who may be able to offer assistance in researching names of those buried in the unmarked graves.

      Funeral Homes: Seagroves, Prince, Trice, Lea and Albright.
