Restored Abandoned and Vandalized Cemetery

Mechanicsburg Cemetery Restoration

With no burials since the 1940s, the Mechanicsburg Cemetery is the final resting place for many of the town’s founding citizens, brothers, sisters and veterans of the Civil and Spanish American wars. This abandoned cemetery was vandalized with over 160 of the 200 headstones knocked over or buried. Cole raised all necessary funds, organized 35 volunteers and spend three months working on the cemetery.

— Cole, Troop 350, Advance, Ind.
