Daughters of Zion Cemetery
The purpose of this project is to bridge the gap between Charlottesville history and UVa’s history. This website exists to inform the UVa community, greater Charlottesville community, and all individuals seeking a better understanding of the Daughters of Zion Cemetery history. This site is meant to be a base of information about the Daughters of Zion Cemetery but for the most updated information about the Cemetery check out the Preservers’ Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/daughtersofzioncemetery
