An Historic Family Cemetery

The Bowles Family Cemetery was once part of the historic African American community of "Free State." In 2014, an interpretive sign was added to this sacred site to help contextualize the history of the cemetery. The next three pages explain the social and historical significance of the graveyard and the surrounding community.


Please join CVHR and the Belevedere Neighborhood association on November 8th at 2pm for re-dedication of the cemetery.
