Confederate Military Cemetery Rehab

Post date: Mar 7, 2014 1:26:13 PM

There are 184 Confederate graves in the military section of Edge Hill Cemetery. Through grants from the Eastern West Virginia Community Foundation we have managed to straighten the tombstones, place concrete around the bases to insure future stability and to clean the stones. In addition we have cleaned the large central monument, replaced the marble fence corners and add a chain around the section as it was originally. This has been a multi-year project and he first phases of this work have been completed. We now look forward to locating, cleaning, and repairing the eighty or so individual Confederate tombstones throughout the older portion of the cemetery the coming year.
