Purchase in 1860 for the "coloured population of Hackensack" and in 1901 incorporated by African-American Trustees as the Gethsemane Cemetery. The one acre lot has about 500 interments of free blacks, former slaves as well as a number of Caucasians. Few stones survive but there are grave marker artifacts of Southern black influence traceable to African burial practices. Since 1985 the site has been owned and restored by the County of Bergen.
