A Grave Undertaking

Record #:
Oberlin Village, one of the original thirteen freed African-American communities in North Carolina, has all but disappeared. As Raleigh grew and expanded, Oberlin’s residents relocated and most of the area has been sold to developers. The 1873 Oberlin Cemetery still remains and the grassroots nonprofit Friends of Oberlin Village hopes to raise funds for a thermal scan to determine burial locations for preservation.
