From Scott – September 23, 2015:
“Another “D/2” testimonial.
These headstones were cleaned by Geneva Weaver, her sister Phyllis, and Jacquelyn Doles just over a month ago. 

They are starting to lighten up!”


 Be sure to check out the calendar on the website of the Greenfield Historical Society for information about upcoming work sessions conducted by volunteers working in this their second year.

The Old Burying Ground is Greenfield’s oldest cemetery where many of its earliest pioneers were laid to rest.  Original headstones mark their graves.  Most have long needed extensive cleaning, repairing, and re-setting.

The results are strikingly clear.

 This all-volunteer group of historical society members and concerned folks who want to join them are getting the job done one grave marker at a time; making great strides by advancing row by row. Their organized planning and caring hands approach have truly transformed this once neglected and deteriorated cemetery that has silently sat on the Paint Creek’s western edge for well over two hundred years.
