It was my pleasure to visit the Old Burying Ground in Greenfield (Highland County, Ohio) this past Saturday (August 9, 2014) during the time Greenfield Historical Society volunteers Scott and Venus Andersen; Harold Schmidt; Patsy Smith; Gloria and Jim Losey; John King; Shirley Shields; and Phil Harewood worked individually and in teams to clean, repair, and re-set as needed a number of gravestones in order to preserve not only the markers themselves, but their inscriptions for future generations.

Below this post is a permanent album of my photographs taken during this third session of the group's ongoing project and presents a short visual of unfolding progress as they moved along from one gravestone to the next to address the condition issues of each one.
