Union Church Cemetery Restoration Project:
Resetting and repairing damaged gravestones
St. Paul's Union Church gated entry before and after restoration. Click images to enlarge.
Resetting cleaned gravestones in spring 2023
A team of volunteers from our church and St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran in Fleetwood cleaned 500 Union Cemetery gravestones and the gated Union Church entrance on West Main Street last summer. The original church stood here for more than 100 years, and the first known burial took place in 1832.
The team is now resetting tilted and leaning gravestones. Each stone needs to be carefully removed so that sand and 1/2" stones can form a drainage field. They use a level to ensure each reset stone is straight. More than 100 gravestones are out of kilter and could use attention. About 30 gravestones are broken as well.
Ways to help now
1. Volunteer some time and energy. We are using shovels, rakes, tampers, levels and small tarps to straighten crooked stones. We will also repair broken stones where feasible.
2. Donate toward sand and 1/2" stones. Write "Union Cemetery" on the memo line of your check and send it to the church (address at bottom of this page). Or fill out the online Donation form and then contact the church office to specify Union Cemetery.
Contact Carol Aulenbach through the church office to volunteer. Thank you for helping to this ambitious project reach a beautiful conclusion!
