Odd Fellows Cemetery, one of the first African American cemeteries in Knoxville, dates back to 1880. The cemetery had become overgrown, and as part of a community restoration effort, the City has recently done paving, maintenance, and tree-planting to protect and preserve the site. The ribbon-cutting will celebrate that work and recognize the ongoing project to bring attention to this historic cemetery.
