They are starting to lighten up!”
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.
