LePageville MCC

The preservation efforts of the LePageville Memorial Cemetery have been led by a small group of dedicated individuals for many years.

 

Despite limited resources, significant progress has been made towards memorializing the legacy of the LePageville  community and cemetery.

 

 Thanks to a grant from Savannah State University, the gateway arch was refurbished and an interpretive sign was installed.
