The study examines two African American cemeteries in the City of Hartsville, South Carolina. The Hartsville Colored Cemetery Associated was created in 1904 and purchased a one acre tract for burial purposes. In 1931 the Mutual Cemetery Association was created, purchasing a second one acre tract adjacent to the first. In the early 1960s the two cemeteries were still well maintained and in use. However, by the 1980s the burial grounds were heavily overgrown and periodic restoration efforts met with little success. Today the distinction between the two organizations has faded and often the two cemeteries are referred to as simple Hartsville’s African American cemetery.
