Cemetery team to head to Hursttown Cemetery team to head to Hursttown

The Harrison County Cemetery Restoration Team will be in Jackson Township at the Hursttown Cemetery on Saturday starting at 8 a.m.

Hursttown Cemetery is located on the northwest corner of S.R. 135 and Sky Aire Road between Corydon and New Salisbury.

The volunteer group would appreciate any additional volunteers who would like to help out and help preserve the county’s heritage.

“It has recently come to our attention that some folks think we are paid for our work,” said team member Mary Eve. “We do not receive a wage for what we do; our labor is purely voluntary. Our group does request a small amount from the town trustees to help pay for the supplies needed to clean and repair gravestones, as part of the trustees’ responsibility is the care of county-owned cemeteries.”

For more information about repairing or cleaning gravestones, call Eve at 812-267-4671.
