African-American Cemetery May Still Sit Below Upper Arlington High School

Construction on the new Upper Arlington High School was set to start in April, but concerns over an African-American cemetery buried beneath the campus have the school district confronting the community’s past.

Upper Arlington School District will study whether remains may still lie beneath the high school’s campus. Superintendent Paul Imhoff said they are working with an archaeologist and plan to conduct a scan of the area to identify any graves that may not have already been cleared.
