Well, it is finally beginning to looking like I did not win the “Fort Worth Texas, The Citys Magazine” Best of 2015 “Best Photographer”. My invitation to the big party at Sundance Square the other night was evidently lost in the mail and the big Limo sent to fetch me most likely got drowned out what with all the rain we had here in the Springtown area. So, many thanks to the vast multitudes of loyal followers who voted for me. As Curley of the three Stooges would say, I will most “Soitenly” try again next year. Whoop, Whoop.
African American Cemetery sits on top of a hill overlooking Lake Arlington to the South and Handley to the North.
The Cemetery is cared for by The Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church 1901 Aminda Ave Fort Worth.
East Lancaster, Spur 303 and the Railroad run parallel to the Cemetery.
Because of it’s out of the way location, it is subject to vandalism.
It is said the Cemetery has over 600 graves, but only a hundred or so have markers.
A lot of these markers are just a rock in the ground.
Sometimes you will see a penny or a nickel on a Grave. That means that someone
who cares for you has visited your Grave.
