The restoration of District Hill Cemetery in Chickamauga, Georgia has been a long time in coming - but the completion of that work is in sight.
District Hill is a historic African-American cemetery, dedicated in 1912 and used through the 1940’s until maintenance of the site stopped over time.
Joyce Haslerig-Harrison is a fourth-generation landowner of the property.
Her father began the project - and she has received help from many corners along the way, including from Dr. Alicia Jackson and her students at Covenant College.
As part of a course in African-American history, Alicia’s students have researched and written biographies on the people buried at District Hill.
