West View Cemetery District Partnership

The Center for Historic Preservation is partnering with Knox Heritage and the West View Community Action Group to highlight the historical significance of a district of African American cemeteries just west of downtown Knoxville. We will be creating new interpretive signage on site, as well as a walking or driving tour brochure to better incorporate this powerful story of African American entrepreneurship during Reconstruction and Jim Crow into the story of Knoxville today.
