Memorial to the Unknown – Daughters of Zion Cemetery

The Preservers proposed erecting a memorial to honor the unknown individuals (recently discovered via a ground penetrating radar survey)at the Daughters of Zion Cemetery who no longer have a marker. The memorial would be installed at the Daughters of Zion Cemetery located near the corner of Oak and First St. South. The project would hopefully foster a greater sense of community and respect for the historic African American cemetery that was established in 1873 by a women’s benevolent society.

Budget – $3500 (Design and Installation of Monument)
