This association does a good job of keeping the grass mowed and trimmed. The cemetery is on the National Register of Historic Places and is a national landmark. The newer and active area of the cemetery is in good shape and kept up to high standards. There is serious decay in the historic sections, with the unique chapel and irreplaceable stained glass windows and building structure. The cemetery office building is also a historic building, that is being left to mother nature to decay. Whole windows are falling out and the building is still used as an office. One window section is completely open on the ground floor that allows anyone to step through it and enter at any time. The cemetery records stored in the building are not safe. This is a deplorable situation that can not be properly expressed here. the historic tombstones, the stones of our forefathers, are being left to fall on the dirt, broken and mower damaged stones are everywhere you look. Historic retaining walls are falling down everywhere you look and left untouched in any attempt to repair or stabilize. This entire association needs to be completely audited and replaced with fresh blood that cares for our history. This is just wrong.
