BRIDGETON MEMORIAL PARK, Bridgeton, Missouri This burying ground at
4616 Long Road was made into a memorial park in 1962. In 1959 several lawsuits were filed against the City for allowing the cemetery to deteriorate. Individual stones had already been removed "through error and misunderstanding" but members of the Bridgeton Historical
Commission were able to learn the names of some who were buried there and a large monument was erected in 1963 which bears this inscription, "We honor
the people buried here. They were part of this nation's adventure and their vision lighted the path we follow today."
At the dedication ceremonies, Mrs. Anna Wilson gave a talk about African-American veterans who are buried here. Records indicate that the cemetery was integrated from its beginning. It was in use as late as 1954 and at least 100 people are buried in the two acres. On the bronze plaque of the monument are the following names:
> >> Adams, Lottie
