Titled "Bethel Burying Ground: A Tribute to a Sacred Space," the installation recognizes the historic significance of the 1/3-acre site in the 400 block of Queen Street.
More than 5,000 people were buried there between 1810 and 1864. Historians have identified 2,500 of them by name. Many of those souls, some with tragic stories, are featured on the walls of the exhibition.
Kelli Lee, who runs the city's Office of Arts, Culture and Creative Economy, says the city's Weccacoe Playground, which sits above the burying ground, is getting a million-dollar makeover.
"This fall we will be breaking ground," Lee said. "The project is for the memorial and for the other changes that are going to happen."
The project is due to be completed next year.
"Bethel Burying Ground: A Tribute to a Sacred Space" will be at City Hall until March 13.
