Graves and gravestones in the Alamance Presbyterian Church near Greensboro date back to 1762. The graveyard is unique because of the number of 18th-century stones and the information they contain, including facts on ethnic origin and views of death.
The courtyard was part of what started as Brown’s Chapel, the elegy not alluding to the Thomas Gray’s Romantic poem. This elegy was remembrance of those in the graveyard for what became the schoolhouse. Stories shared by longtime residents with the author made evident the effort to keep the memories of ancestors and the church alive.
