To those who participate in this Saturday’s (Aug 22, 8:30 am) Green Hill Cemetery friends work session, you will be richly rewarded!
For those who are happy to spend their Saturday morning assisting in sprucing up the cemetery, remember to bring something for your refreshment, and then enjoy a 1.5 hour walking tour by volunteer Ann Stringfield AFTER the work session. The tour time depends on when the work session ends. This special tour is offered only to those who help with cemetery clean-up and is ONLY available for those who come to work this Saturday morning.
For those who are interested in learning more about the cemetery, the next public tour will be available for $5 per person on Sunday October 25, 2;00 pm, weather permitting.
Green Hill Cemetery is a public cemetery operated that is maintained by the City of Greensboro. The cemetery opened in 1882 and occupies 51 acres in the heart of the Gate City. The cemetery serves as an historic and cultural resource for the community by featuring the final resting place of notable citizens and finely-crafted funerary art. Its conservation has been the concern of the Greensboro’s preservation community for many years.
