Potential burial for the enslaved. In 2009, Thunderbird Archeology, Inc. conducted a cemetery delineation of property, locating field stones (potential burial markers) and grave shafts indicating burials. PWCPS gave NAACP entry rights to the cemetery for purpose of restoring, landscaping, and maintaining the cemetery. In June 2018, members of the community established the non-profit organization "Friends of the Dumfries Slave Cemetery".
