Boonshill (African American) Cemetery
Lincoln County,

This is an old African American Cemetery that is no longer maintained. Only two markers are visible. It is located on a hillside just down the slope from the location where an African American school and church were once located. There are some field stone markers scattered about but most have probably been disturbed over the years. The present landowner has done an admirable job of preventing further disturbance to the area.
