The Friends of the African-American Cemetery invite the public to participate in a Veterans Day ceremony, Saturday, November 4 at 10 a.m. to remember and honor those buried at the cemetery.

The land for the cemetery, adjacent to Greenwood Union Cemetery, was donated to the Town of Rye in 1860 by Underhill and Elizabeth Halstead with the condition that it “shall forever hereafter kept, held and used for the purpose of a cemetery or burial place for the colored inhabitants of the said Town of Rye, and its vicinity free and clear of any charge therefor…”

This year the Friends will pay homage to the 24 known veterans buried at the site who fought in wars from the Civil War to the Korean War.
