Fort Worth’s smallest Lumber Yard, W.K. Lumber Co. in a small triangle of land at 4800 Airport Freeway and Oakview in Haltom City. At this location on April 13 Th 2007 a Tornado tore through this lumber yard causing a stack of lumber to fall on one man killing him.
African American Cemetery sits on top of a hill overlooking Lake Arlington to the South and Handley to the North.
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.
