Lindley Hill Cemetery

About fifty yards from my house is Lindley Hill Cemetery. It was in use when cemeteries were as segregated as everything else; as such, it's one of the oldest African American cemeteries in Chester County. When I left Downingtown the tombstones were barely visible in the overgrown underbrush, there was no sign marking it as a cemetery, and I used to go there to spend time with girls I was dating. Someone has obviously adopted it and started taking care of it in the past few years.
