About

The property of Golden Hill Cemetery is believed to be the oldest tract of land continuously owned by African-Americans in Montgomery County, dating back to 1863. It was established on land originally purchased in 1863, by Stephen Cole, a former slave who purchased his freedom in 1859, and is believed to be the oldest tract of land continuously owned by African Americans in Clarksville. Golden Hill is also considered to be the first corporate business owned by African Americans in Clarksville. Golden Hill is located immediately East of Evergreen Cemetery, which is a second cemetery for African Americans established in 1929.
