Pre-Colonial burial site uncovered
A forgotten pre-Colonial burial site was uncovered near uptown Charlotte.

Carolinas Medical Center-Mercy is working on a new office building in the Elizabeth neighborhood. Two weeks ago they uncovered evidence of a burial site from Charlotte’s history as a colonial town in the 1770s.

“You never know what you're going to find when you start doing construction,” said CMC’s Scott White.
