Clemson University

Free Walking Tour of the African American Burial Ground, A.P. Calhoun Family Plot, and Woodland Cemetery at Clemson University

For Black History Month 2024, we are offering several tours of the cemetery during February. Review these available tour times on our tour calendar. Registration for the Black History Month tours is encouraged but not required. The cemetery at Clemson University, nestled beside Memorial Stadium ("Death Valley"), is now open again to the public for visitation. The 17.5-acre wooded area actually has three burial grounds: the African American Burial Ground, the Andrew Pickens Calhoun Family Plot, and Woodland Cemetery. Over several months in 2023, the Pathways Project significantly improved the campus cemetery, from addressing accessibility concerns in the sacred space to providing additional lighting and security measures.


We are offering free one-hour cemetery tours to classes, local organizations, and campus and community groups. If you would like to schedule a tour, please fill out the Tour Registration Form, or contact us via our main email address or email the Community Engagement Assistant, Marquise Drayton, at
