242    CARTER-FINLEY STADIUM PARKING LOT SITE #2

      Location - In Carter-Finley Stadium parking lot towards the stadium and slightly to the right is a wooded area where four headstones are visible in front of Parking Space # 00589.

      Coordinates: 35d 48m 09.7s N; 78d 43m 04.3s W Click here for Google maps

      Directions: from the intersection of Hillsborough St.,(Hwy. # 54),and Youth Center Rd.,Raleigh, on the west side of the Fair Grounds, take Youth Center Rd. 1/2 mile to Trinity Rd. Directly in front of you is Stadium Rd., the entrance to the parking lot of the stadium. Enter Stadium Rd.

      Everyone in Wake Co. knows where Carter-Finley Stadium is located, across from the Hunt Horse Complex and the NC State Fairgrounds on Trinity Rd., but hardly anyone knows there is one single burial site and one small cemetery in the parking lot. A third cemetery has disappeared, probably the victim of the retaining wall fronting on Trinity Rd. where that cemetery once was located. Overhead satelite view of the cemetery location.

      Surveyed by Shirley Olson on June 29, 2007. Another view of the cemetery. Many additional burials surveyed by Rick Moss in April 2008. View #3 of the maintained area inside the cemetery.

      In 2008, the graveyard is in very bad shape - many broken and missing markers, lots of beer cans and trash strewn around. It is still being used - the most recent stone is dated 2006 and folks still come by and leave flowers or mementos.
