Cemetery Restoration Fund
Cemeteries are among our most valuable archaeological and historic resources. They are also one of our most fragile resources. The challenge of documenting, restoring and preserving local historic cemeteries is one of the most important and challenging endeavors our Historical Society has undertaken. Please consider donating to the GDHS Cemetery Restoration Fund so that necessary work can be done to preserve the Simonstown, Kipptown, Hazelton, and Wolfe Cemeteries. Let’s work together to clean up and preserve these important pieces of our history and restore dignity to those who have passed.
Members and friends may express their support for the future of the Greene-Dreher Historical Society by including a bequest in their estate plan. There are several ways to make a bequest to GDHS. We recommend you consult with your attorney or financial planner when considering a bequest that best fits your personal circumstances. For more information, please contact us.
