Woodland Cemetery on the Clemson campus is sacred ground and home to more than 1,200 souls buried in marked and unmarked graves. Clemson respectfully asks fans to recognize the solemnity of the cemetery when walking its paths.
Signs, markers and barriers have been added to help ensure that fans can freely navigate the cemetery grounds without treading or disturbing the graves. Motorized vehicles and skateboards are not permitted within the cemetery.
Clemson is committed to protecting and preserving the graves of all who are buried at Woodland and dedicated to honoring and respecting those who built this great university. On Saturday, staff of the Woodland Cemetery Historic Preservation Project will be in the cemetery to answer your questions.
