Abandoned Civil and Revolutionary War Era Cemetery Cleanup In Richmond


If you were not looking for the old cemetery on 421 by the Battlefield Welcome Center…you just might pass it up.

The overgrown area has since been abandoned, and is one of two that still exist to preserve the history of early Madison County.

Stewart Davidson spoke with us, as he needs help rallying together a group to help clean and preserve this area, adjacent to part of the Blue Grass Army Depot. He says that this one in particular, seen in the video, is called cemetery A and has hundreds of graves spread across 5 acres.

However, Davidson says that it is necessary to have strength in numbers to get the place cleaned up. Watch the video to get all the details so that you can be a part of restoring Madison County History.
