Most People Are Surprised To Stumble Upon This Ancient Cemetery In The Heart Of One Of North Carolina’s Biggest Cities

Uptown Charlotte is known for many things. It’s the largest business district in the Carolinas and is home to Fortune 500 companies like Bank of America and Honeywell. It is also the site of many sporting events throughout the year. All are things you’d expect to find in a large, urban locale. But Charlotte’s Uptown drills down to four neighborhoods (called wards) and one of them is home to an ancient cemetery that first opened during the Revolutionary War.
