Information Resources

These historic burial grounds are a memorial park, serving as a place to promote unity, appreciation, and to educate: to remember and preserve the heritage, contributions, and sacrifices these founders of Georgetown made during their lifetimes; and provide insight to their families and the community in which they lived during a time of deep segregation.

These resources provide information, photo galleries, and external references related to the history of the cemeteries, the lives of the persons for whom this sanctuary is their final resting place, and the Georgetown community. 

 

Also provided is a variety of general information resources about historic cemetery preservation.  

 If you have questions or feedback about these tools,  or if you would like to help us maintain this resource, please contact us using this email service.
