African Burial Ground National Monument [NY]
During the 17th and 18th centuries, hundreds of free and enslaved African Americans were buried in lower Manhattan. Over the ensuing decades, the ground was covered by development and a landfill. Today, the United States General Services Administration (GSA) manages the site. The national monument comprises a relatively small area of the original burial ground, which could possibly extend across Broadway to City Hall.
The site offers historical information about the site, information about the process by which it was designated a National Monument, and government reports regarding the site.
