The Come and Take It chapter of the DAR invites community members to help clean up the Canaan Cemetery, which has become overgrown with brush, briars and cacti. This cemetery was a major cemetery for the now extinct African American farming community of Canaan in the Brazos Valley. Located at the corner of Kuder Rd and Pitts Rd. just west of Texas A and M's RELLIS Campus, Canaan Cemetery has over 400 known burials and is the resting place of several notable people including Powell Harvey, the first elected black county constable.
