Months after graves were found on the future site of a new high school in Prince William County, two county supervisors are calling for new rules about dealing with previously undocumented gravesites.
They weren\’t ghosts, but goats that spent about three weeks eating their way through a local cemetery.
Prince William County\’s public school system is growing by about 2,000 new students each year. So the county is set to build a new high school. But what\’s been discovered is a graveyard predating the Civil War at the 110-acre site for the new school. It may need to be unearthed and moved.
Thousands of unmarked graves are buried beneath a local park, and one group wants to make sure they aren\’t forgotten.
