TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – An unsettling discovery was made at Kings High School in Tampa.
145 graves were found buried on the school property. Researchers say it may have been a history cemetery before the school was even built and that the majority of the people buried there were African Americans.
School officials say they are working with a medical examiner and state archaeologist to decide what to do with the land. If the school district is allowed to keep it, they say they will find a proper way to memorialize the people buried there.
Officials are expected to make a decision about the property within the next 30 days.
