In 1991, development laborers here revealed in excess of 400 stacked wooden coffins, only 16ft to 28ft underneath road level. The crates contained the remaining parts of both subjugated and free African Americans from the seventeenth and eighteenth hundreds of years (from 1697, close by Trinity Church denied them entombment in its cemetery). Today, an impactful commemoration site and a guest community with four rooms of instructive presentations respect the assessed 15,000 men, ladies, and youngsters covered in America’s biggest and most established African graveyard.
