Between April 18 and 22, 2011 Chicora Foundation personnel conducted a field investigation of the African American Goodwyn Cemetery situated in the Hopkins area of lower Richland County, South Carolina. Like most African American burial grounds, the history of the cemetery is not well understood, but it is possible that the cemetery was used by enslaved blacks during the late antebellum. By the late nineteenth century, the cemetery was associated with the nearby St. John Baptist Church. While still known to local African Americans, the last burials in the cemetery occurred in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
