About 25 students, parents, and members of the Historical Society, gathered together on Hedges Hill for our first cemetery watch. We guarded the cemetery from 6:00 pm to midnight. Everyone enjoyed grilled hot dogs and ghost stories told by society members!
An effort is being made to clean and restore stones in the Old North Cemetery. Many of these stones have been covered and some have been taken. Probbing has produced a few more stones and cleaning was completed. The stones are now being placed back in an area where proper tribute can be made. Join our class in completing this project with the Posey County Historical Society!
