Laboring Sons Cemetery

A cemetery was established at this site in 1851 by the Beneficial Society of the Laboring Sons of Frederick to provide a burial ground for citizens of color. The Beneficial Society had been formed in 1839 "for the purpose of relieving or alleviating, both spiritually and temporally, any member of us, who may be distressed . . .and to see that his mortal remains be interred with decency." The society remained active for more than 100 years, and this ground remained a cemetery until 1949.

The trustees who purchased the land were:
Cyrus Bowens · Isaac Prout? ?? ?
William Brown · William Tasker
? ? Robert E. Probee · Nicholas Thompson

This hallowed site was dedicated as a memorial ground by the City of Frederick and the Laboring Sons Memorial Committee on the 15th of January 2003.

This plaque was donated by Lough Memorials.
