Black Diamond Cemetery

The Black Diamond Historical Cemetery is listed on the State and National Registers of Historical Places. The earliest gravestone is dated 1880. The Historical Society has taken a special interest in preserving the gravestones as a photographic record project. As a result of this project, it was discovered that the cemetery records were not complete, and contained many inaccuracies. This proved to be more of a challenge than photographing the gravestones in a cemetery that contained over 1,100 graves.

Black Diamond Museum

The Black Diamond Historical Society was formed by a small group who decided to honor the nation’s bicentennial by preserving a little bit of America right at home. Many felt a strong concern for the disappearing buildings and artifacts in Black Diamond. Restoration of the depot began following the formation of the Historical Society in 1976. The museum, pictured above, opened in 1982. To read more about our early days, see the About Us page.

The museum hosts a number of events and presentations. Please visit the Events page for the latest information.

The museum is staffed by volunteers. Operating expenses are covered by contributions and membership dues, as well as some special grants. We want to thank our members for helping to keep this little piece of history alive.
