Prospect Hill Neighborhood Association Dedicating Gateway, Holding Headstone Restoration Workshop at Rose Hill Cemetery Saturday

(BLOOMINGTON) – The Prospect Hill Neighborhood Association and the Monroe County History Center are hosting a new archway dedication in conjunction with a headstone restoration workshop at Rose Hill Cemetery, 1100 W. Fourth St., Sept. 21 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. 

A brief celebration of the installation of a new archway sign, erected in recognition of Rose Hill Cemetery’s bicentennial this year, takes place at 10 a.m. and includes guest speakers and refreshments. The public is welcome and invited to attend.

Immediately following the archway dedication, volunteers are needed to assist with the repair of broken grave markers throughout the cemetery. Volunteers may drop in and out of the workshop as they are able, and are asked to dress for the weather and bring work gloves.

Funding for the new archway and entrance improvements, as well as the headstone restoration workshop, was provided in part through the Bloomington Housing and Neighborhood Development Department’s Neighborhood Improvement Grant Program.
