Kudos to Student Kayleigh Last for Successfully Adding Local Cemetery to Historical Register

Last semester UAHuntsville public history student, Kayleigh Last, completed a Cemetery survey to nominate a historical cemetery to the Alabama Historical Commission. The graveyard, located in Limestone county, is an African American masonic graveyard that makes a significant cultural contribution to the surrounding community. On September 11th, she got word that the graveyard was officially accepted to the AHC and was only the second graveyard on the register in Limestone County. Kayleigh plans to bring together members of the local community to work to preserve the cemetery. Great job!
