BELVILLE—Fifteen gravesites discovered behind Belville Elementary School won’t be moved anytime soon.
The gravesites were discovered in September when a Wilmington developer began clearing a 166-acre tract near the school and petitioned county commissioners to move the graves to a new location.
But after residents’ fervent opposition to moving the gravesites, commissioners denied the developer’s petition.
The developer, Hawkeswater III, petitioned the county to move the gravesites to a different location under N.C. General Statute 65-105.
