Danville Officials Want to Move Burial Ground

Posted:

Danville, VA --Danville city officials are looking into moving what's believed to be a slave cemetery at a developing industrial park on Gypsum Road.

The Danville Industrial Development Authority wants to create a memorial park somewhere else.

They think the industrial park will bring economic growth for the area.

The burial ground dates back to the late 17-hundreds, but did not meet the criteria for the National Register of Historic Places.
