Shadow Lawn Memorial Gardens is a 40-acre cemetery across the street from Grace Hill Cemetery and two blocks south of Elmwood Cemetery. Historically it has served the city’s African American community exclusively.
The cemetery property was purchased for $1 in 1889, but its formal use dates to the 1930s. Over 100 Civil War veterans are said to be interred there.
