Gospel Pilgrim Cemetery Clean-Up

Gospel Pilgrim Cemetery Flyer
Date and time:
Gospel Pilgrim Cemetery

The Gospel Pilgrim Cemetery, founded in 1882, was once a very prominent burial site for African Americans in Athens, Georgia. The cemetery was largely neglected and fell into disrepair over the last three decades. Recently, there has been a resurrection of interest in Gospel Pilgrim and in the history and identity of the more than 3000 people who were laid to rest there over the last 126 years. Come with us to restore this crucial part of Athenian history!
