Calvary Cemetery is owned by the City of Norfolk.
Calvary Cemetery was established as a burial ground for Norfolk's African American citizens on January 9, 1877. For nearly a century, most of Norfolk's African American citizens were interred at Calvary as there were not other burial options available in Norfolk until the mid-1970s. The cemetery spans more than 68 acres.
Many of Norfolk’s Civil Rights pioneers and champions are buried here. The namesakes for Norfolk places like Young's Park and the Vivian C. Mason Teen Center are laid to rest here. The old section is home to the Lane Angel, the largest monument in the cemetery. Section 10 is the site of a military memorial highlighting just some of the heroes who rest here.
