Cemetery notes and/or description:
Although there are dozens of African American cemeteries in Chatham County, Georgia, Laurel Grove South is the most significant final resting place for African Americans who died in the 19th and 20th Centuries. While slavery was still legal, there were more free African Americans interred in Laurel Grove South than any other cemetery in the Southeast. The cemetery is now 90 acres in size with the main entrance at 2101 Kollock Street at the west end of 37th Street. The cemetery serves as a culturally and historically significant site for African American religion, education, civil rights and business. While there are many fine specimens of Victorian-style cemetery structures, most of the graves in Laurel Grove South are simply unmarked. The cemetery is a public park-like open space with massive cypress trees towering from its wetlands. It is open to the public daily from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and there is no admission fee.
