"Ground-penetrating radar has detected what appear to be more than 120 coffins under an apartment complex in Tampa"

Tampa Bay Times:

The 2½-acre, segregation-era burial ground, believed to be the city’s first for African-Americans, was established in 1901 along the 3700 block of Florida Ave. and extended back around 400 feet.

It disappeared nearly a century ago when the land was parceled off for white developments.

No one tried to find it until now.
