WARNING

The Cemetery is Closed Until Further Notice


Several large, dangerous sink holes have opened up in the cemetery (March 2014). The sink holes are on the main road approximately 30 yards inside the Main Gate. The area is surrounded by a temporary fence for safety purposes but it is dangerous to walk in the cemetery at this time.

The cemetery is closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic until further notice. Please heed this warning. Pedestrians climbing the cemetery fence to walk from one side to the other will be considered Trespassers.

For an update on the sinkhole problem please visit the cemetery blog which can be found here:
