Woodland Cemetery Historic Preservation

Latest Updates

Clemson University is committed to a full and truthful account of the African American Burial Ground and Woodland Cemetery. In the spirit of transparency, we have created this space to share updates about the project as we move forward. Discovering history is a dynamic process. What we know changes with what we discover, over time; what we discover can also change the questions we ask, sometimes dramatically. The answers we thought we had can also change. This space will document that process of historical research and provide other project updates, including upcoming tours, events, and community engagement initiatives.
