Evergreen Cemetery: Section M

Through a partnership with the African American Heritage Society of Rutherford County, a monument and marking ceremony is planned for section “M” of Evergreen Cemetery. Originally called Oaklands Cemetery, oral tradition indicates that this is the burial ground of the enslaved workers of the former plantation.
