Help Save Our Historic Cemeteries

Those of us who attended the Cemetery Preservation Conference in Perryville in October are very concerned about the condition of our historic Boyle County Cemeteries. We are planning in the spring to work on some of the cemeteries using the skills that we learned in this conference. If any of you are interested in helping with the projects, please contact us. We will be happy to share some of the information we learned with you and help restore private cemeteries that may be located on your own property. Some restoration work has been started on the Old Union Cemetery and we appreciate the efforts of those who have been doing this important work. There is still much work that needs to be done in our county to honor those pioneers and citizens who have built this wonderful place to live.
