Adams-Kimball Cemetery is on private property. GPS coordinates above are for the property entrance, not the actual graveyard.
Adams-Kimball Cemetery was located on a small farm owned by an African-American family. The Adams Family was renowned for their stone masonry. Most of the stone walls along Hillsboro Pike were constructed by the Adamses, the artisanship passed down generation to generation.
The Adams family cemetery off Hillsboro Pike has three tombstones, one with an interesting distinction: It marks the grave of a Civil War soldier who served in the U.S. Colored Infantry. Harvey Kimball apparently married into the Adams family and came here to live after his service.
