TitleLocal Volunteers Preserve History at Elmwood Cemetery
AbstractArticle on efforts to restore and preserve Elmwood Cemetery. Designed by George Kessler, the cemetery opened in 1872 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. "Everyone that has a street named after them is buried" there, including city founders and 12 mayors. Two acres of the cemetery are owned by The Temple, Congregation B'nai Jehudah, and many of the temple's members have worked to help restore the cemetery. The cemetery relies on volunteers for assistance, and also maintains a Family History Project on its website that is continuously updated.
