Information
Anne Chesky Smith, Executive Director of the Western North Carolina Historical Association, continues the story of the South Asheville cemetery. Located in the Kenilworth neighborhood, the cemetery was originally a place to bury enslaved people and following the Civil War continued as a burial site for African Americans until the 1940s. This video recounts the story of the Bailey family and their lives after emancipation and while they were enslaved by the Smiths and McDowells.
