Ground Penetrating Radar Survey Under Way at African American Cemetery in Rye, NY

Heritage has begun work, in conjunction with the Town of Rye and the Friends of the African American Cemetery, to fulfill the requirements of a grant provided by the National Parks Service African American Civil Rights Grant initiative. The work will include ground penetrating radar survey of the cemetery, three-dimensional photogrammetry of each existing headstone, drone mapping of the cemetery, with the goal of producing a high resolution burial plot map, that includes the text of each extant grave marker and identifies all potential marked and unmarked burials within the cemetery.

We are deeply honored to conduct this work in partnership with the Town and Friends organization, and look forward to the results of this survey, recognizing that there is still much work to do to honor those who are buried within the cemetery. Fox 5 New York covered some of our collective work earlier this week.
