Prewitt Slave Cemetery
Old Byler Road, Northport

The cemetery is located just off Byler Road, the oldest public road in Alabama. The cemetery is on the site of the former plantation of the Prewitt family who settled the area in about 1820 and are said to have imported some of their slaves directly from Africa. After the Civil War, many of the former Prewitt slaves continued to live in the area and buried their dead here.
