    Cherry Hill Cemetery, an African-American family burial ground, was established in 1884 on the farm of Josiah Adams. It is the only intact African-American family farm cemetery in the Bladensburg-Riverdale-Hyattsville area. The graves are marked with slabs of local ironstone and plants. African-American families, including the Adams, Becketts and Plummers, buried their loved ones at Cherry Hill through the 1940s.
