Richland Cemetery Leaders of the Past

For more than a century, nestled on a hill near the intersections of Stone Avenue and Laurens Road, Richland Cemetery has been the resting place of some of Greenville’s most influential and prominent African Americans.

Recently, Greenville City Council took the first steps to beef-up maintenance of one of its valuable, historical resources — Richland Cemetery. By the creation of Friends of Richland Cemetery, a non-profit support group, citizens will attempt to address maintenance and beautification issues by raising funds for additional capital improvements, as well as raising awareness and preserving the historical significance of the cemetery.

If you are interested in serving on the Friends of Richland Cemetery support group, please contact the City Clerk’s Office, City of Greenville, at 864-467-4350.

Several of Greenville’s most prominent citizens are interred at Richland Cemetery. These people made significant contributions to the Greenville community during their life time. The legacy of their contributions continues today.
