Led by Children’s Hospital Veterans and Military Family Advocacy Network (VAMFAN), Keep Cincinnati Beautiful invites you to join us on Saturday, April 5, 2014 for a day of service. Cincinnati’s Wesleyan Cemetery, chartered in 1843, is the oldest continually operating cemetery in Hamilton County. Now under the jurisdiction of the City of Cincinnati, Wesleyan is a documented part of the Underground Railroad story and is the final resting place of veterans from the Revolutionary War to the Gulf Wars. Among the veterans buried at Wesleyan are over one thousand Civil War soldiers, including many who served in the United States Colored Troops.
We will be continuing to clean and restore headstones as well as painting the chain link fence at the entrance of the cemetery.
