Our Cemetery

Established in 1866

Caring for our Legacy

A ministry of Cary First Christian Church, the Cary First Christian Church Cemetery is conveniently located in the southwest section of Cary, NC located 1.3 miles from downtown. We are a historic cemetery established in 1866 on the site of Cary’s first African American congregation, listed with the Capital Area Preservation as a Wake County Historic Landmark.  We encourage you to watch the video and learn more about the cemetery and the process of being designated.

 Cary First Christian Church Cemetery is still an active cemetery with available spaces for members of our faith community and the general public. The cemetery is committed to being a sacred space dedicated to fulfilling the sacred trust to the relatives who chose to entrust their love ones. Whether one has just lost a loved one, are beginning to plan for the future, or are curious to explore our cultural and architectural legacy, we are here to serve.  To learn more please message us below.
