What is the name of this street now?

19 Jan

I had seen an report about a year ago on our local ABC affiliate about a forgotten cemetery located in Southwest Charlotte. The story stated that it was a slave cemetery owned by the Shuman Family. Now back around the 1930’s and 1940’s this street went by Shuman Avenue. The name changed sometime during the 1950’s. Do you know what the street is known as now?

    I have a 1942 Charlotte map, and it appears that Shuman Ave is now Remount Road, the part that starts at South Blvd, where Ideal Way ends. I got this map at the Mapshop at Morehead and Kings Drive.
