The African American cemetery at Drayton Hall West Ashley, SC
This graveyard is the resting place for many of the African Americans who lived and worked at Drayton Hall. The last burial took place in 1998 and was that of Richmond Bowens, a descendant of enslaved people at Drayton Hall and one of the National Trust’s richest resources on African American history. In keeping with his wishes, this cemetery has been “left natural,” not restored or planted with grass or decorative shrubs. His words, “Leave ‘em rest,” appear on the iron gate at the entrance.
