Collections / Map / Site: Flatbush African Burial Ground Site

P.S. 325-K Church and Bedford Avenues Brooklyn, New York (2001)

Archaeological testing occurred at the southwest intersection of Bedford Ave and Church Ave in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn.  Documentary sources indicated that an historic African Burial Ground was located within the site, and testing found a few fragmentary human remains but no burial shafts or coffin remains, neither confirming nor excluding the possibility of burials on the untested portion of the site. The archaeological collection is within the NYC Archaeological Repository and the human remains were reinterred.  An intact 19th-century brick privy, dating to the site’s use as a Public School, was fully excavated and contained a wealth of artifacts.
