Cedar Creek and Mill Creek, KY
The Cedar Creek Black Cemetery is located in Hardin County, KY. Buried there are the descendants of the former slaves who lived in the area. After the slaves gained their freedom, an African American community was established around the cemetery along with the African Methodist Episcopal Church and a school.
A second African American community existed near Wright Cemetery. According to Gary Kempf (see below), there are two cemeteries behind the Wright Cemetery where African Americans were buried. The land that held the communities and the cemeteries was taken over for the expansion of Fort Knox Military Reservation.
