Old Danville Road Cemetery
The Old Danville Road Cemetery, located in Jessamine County, KY, was the first African-American cemetery restored in the Jessamine County Historical and Genealogical Society restoration project, which began in 1999.
Interred in the small cemetery is the family of Edward Bridges, a Civil War soldier of Company L, 5th Colored Cavalry. Bridges died in 1921. The cemetery is located on farmland that he owned; the property is still owned by family members.
