Milton Valley Cemetery was established in 1874 on three
acres purchased from the E. G. Hebb family on land that was
once part of the adjacent Milton Valley Farm. One of several
African-American cemeteries in Clarke County, Milton Valley
contains the remains of a Civil War soldier, soldiers who
served in the Spanish-American War, and many who died
enslaved and were buried without identification.

Thomas Laws, an enslaved man who acted as a spy for Union
General Sheridan, is buried in the cemetery as are Rev.
Edward T. Johnson and Mr. Raymond Ratcliffe, former
principals of Johnson-Williams High School.
