Buried Albany history

In 2005, an unmarked cemetery was accidentally discovered during construction along Route 32 (Broadway) in the town of Colonie. Based on historical research and skeletal analysis, it is believed the burial ground was used by enslaved Africans owned by the colonial Albany Schuyler family.

You are invited to a public meeting to discuss the proper burial and commemoration of human remains of African descent uncovered in Colonie.
