Guilford Quarry Cemetery Spring Cleanup Day
April 10, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Join us for a spring cleanup of this historic cemetery.
Originally a Polton/Carroll family cemetery from the early 1800s there are dozens of African American burials consistent with those that were enslaved. Help us solve this mystery by maintaining access to their grave sites.
We will rake leaves and bag them and put branches along the retaining wall and pull any weeds we can. Bring gloves, rakes, and extra lawn bags if you have them as well as a water bottle. Ask questions and offer suggestions during your visit with us or just enjoy the scenery and a quick visit.
We will schedule two more clean-ups (summer and fall) and the fall clean-up will hopefully have a dumpster to fill like last year. The cemetery is accessible from behind 9145 Guilford Road , Columbia, MD
