Cemetery Restoration in Franklin County

The Franklin County Cemetery Commission, The Citizens for Historic Preservation and Joe Jarzen of the Historic Landmarks Foundation of Indiana have formed a group to help raise money to restore Old Brookville Cemetery, which was heavily vandalized in August 2007. Thanks to generous donations from residents and various organizations (including area churches), they have raised $18,000. The restoration of the cemetery will probably begin in the spring of 2008. For more information on the project, please contact Julie Schlesselman (
