Civil War Monument in Cemetery
This is a nice monument in Greenlawn Cemetery. It is granite and about 15 feet high. There are several tombstones of Civil War Veterans nearby. The monument is in good condition but the tombstones need cleaning. The cemetery is about one mile NE of town. Take Pheasant Avenue, a gravel road, north from Highway 34. The monument is visible from the main entrance. Photo taken 5/16/09.
