Project Description

TJAF funded interpretive signage at the original cemetery of Friendship Chapel Baptist Church in Wake Forest. In 2017, the Wake Forest Historical Museum, Wake Forest Historical Association, and Friendship Chapel Baptist Church partnered to conduct oral histories about the cemetery and a TJAF grant supported a ground-penetrating radar survey of the site. In 2023, another grant enabled the design and production of 2 interpretive signs that explain the history and evolution of the cemetery. The signs also link to an online repository of material related to the church’s history and the preservation of the cemetery. The Wake Forest Historical Association was a 2022 grant recipient.
