Volunteers clean up Greenbush Cemetery

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Volunteers came to do some spring cleaning at Greenbush Cemetery Sunday afternoon.

Volunteers helped tidy the cemetery from 3 to 6 p.m. The goal was to clean up as much debris, limbs, leaves and other items as possible.

Fairfield Township took over ownership of the cemetery late last year. Fairfield Township Trustee Julie Roush said they would like to make the cemetery more inviting to the public.

“There are a lot of people here that said ‘This place is beautiful’ and they didn’t realize it. They hadn’t been in here,” said Roush. “This was created to be park-like. We want to get benches and make it a place where people can come and rest with those that have passed away.”

Roush said the cemetery also has a lot of history including the graves of Revolutionary and Civil War soldiers.
