Saving the Past

Greenwood Cemetery was awarded a grant from the Oregon Commission on Historic Cemeteries to repair, restore, and clean aging, vintage monuments.  The goal of 45 monuments targeted for the restoration efforts was met and exceeded.  To date, 60 vintage monuments have been successfully saved from the ravages of time at Greenwood Cemetery.   To read an article published in The Daily Astorian about the project, please click here  

 

Gravesite monuments allow future generations a glimpse into the past.  By restoring these monuments, we preserve treasures of information that would otherwise soon be lost or forgotten.  

Please view the videos below.  The first video will be sent to the Commission along with the written report describing the efforts and outstanding results of this project.   The second video was created to announce the grant award and to communicate the scope of the project.
