Clay Cemetery, in the Kirkwood Neighborhood, is one of the few intact historical sites on Atlanta’s Eastside that dates back to early settlers. About 250 acres of Cherokee land was lotteried in 1823 and the Clay family soon bought the land by selling 10 slaves. It is documented that the cemetery became an integrated burial ground in the 1950s well before court ordered integration in the 1970s. Clay Cemetery is located near Giliam park off of Clifton St NE. I’ve lived in or around Kirkwood for the better part of a decade and used the trolly line trail as a cut through on a weekly basis, but never knew about this interesting historical site until a recent coffee delivery. This cemetery reminds me of some of the worst parts of our history, but also how things can change.
Thank you Big Mike from Discount Tires. Your compressed air worked much better than my emergency pump.
I’m loving the new basket for deliveries. Much easier that pulling everything from my bags. I also purchased rear handle bars for my daughter to join me on deliveries. So much fun!
