The Burial Ground at Belmont​

Grant Recipient 2019

The Belmont Enslaved Cemetery, located on the former Lee Family-owned Belmont Plantation, is the largest known African American Burial Ground for the Enslaved in Loudoun County. Spanning over 120 acres and 220 years, this centuries old, once abandoned heritage site holds the key to unlocking the true history of the African American experience in Loudoun County. The Virts Miller Foundation made a significant donation to help educate the public about this historic site, including restoring the cemetery and the gravesite markers.
