Cemetery Restoration
Hebrew Cemetery Restoration
The restoration of the Hebrew Cemetery started after the purchase of the land in 1993 and took several years to fully accomplish. With the Cemetery in disrepair and overtaken by the forest after many decades, the restoration efforts were extensive. Our documentation is rather sparse since the efforts really focused on the actual work rather than the documentation. The first two or three years of cleanup weekends with B'nai B'rith were the most extensive and heavy. The early efforts included clearing out overbrush and underbrush, replacing the dilapidated fence with a new fence, adding a new entrance arch, and repairing broken and fallen stones.
We are searching for more records and documentation of the Hebrew Cemetery through the 20th Century and with the restoration efforts in the 1990s. If you have any information--and especially photos--of the restoration efforts, please contact us!
