Chapter 7 - The Cemetery

County Home Cemetery
Mecklenburg County Poor House and County Home

The County Home maintained a cemetery a few hundred yards south of the main building on North Tryon Street.  W. T. Harris Boulevard did not extend all the way to Tryon Street until 1969, so in the years the cemetery was in use, it was not separated from the rest of the County Home site. The cemetery is within a grove of trees on McCullough Drive, just off the 300 block of E. W.T. Harris Boulevard.

For more pictures of the cemetery and further information, see “Known Cemeteries of Mecklenburg County” in this website. John Miller, Jr., mentions the cemetery in his interview at the end of the extract labeled “Inmates’ Work.”
