Maplewood was created in 1872 as Durham’s very first public amenity. The cemetery is Durham’s very first public space and its very first planned space. It is a garden of memories and our oldest repository of public art. In Maplewood are buried captains of industry, famous educators, great philanthropists, and ordinary people. In the cemetery are reposed the origins of many Durham legends and icons. There are stories of war and disease and the struggle against both. There are stories of love and of prejudice, of triumph and tragedy. Learn about funerary customs and grave architecture. Enjoy the peace and solemnity of one of the city’s great historic treasures.
