The Cemetery That Wasn’t There

Record #:
Biddleville Cemetery is a 145-year-old burial plot in Charlotte where black veterans of both world wars and the Spanish-American War rest. Until recently, the cemetery had not been listed as an official cemetery or tied to any one specific church. Local resident Nolie Steele helped to recognize and protect Biddleville Cemetery as an official historic Mecklenburg County landmark, and continues to research the veterans who are buried there so that their graves can be marked.
