Records: Slave cemetery on site of planned school (Raleigh, NC)

Neighbors of a proposed Wake County high school say they have more evidence that a slave cemetery is on the land.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Tuesday that residents living near the site in Raleigh said they found property records that show it was once owned by a family that operated a plantation.

They said headstones on the land indicate more graves are on the site and plan to present their findings to Wake County school officials this week.
