It is our wish that all of our visitors find Old City Cemetery to be a place of dignity, comfort, and peace.
Over the years, many grave markers in the potter’s field have been lost or damaged. We feel a strong sense of responsibility to preserve and maintain the graves of those buried here, and so we are partnering with the City of Lynchburg and Whitten Funeral Home, to replace all of the missing and damaged markers.
The revitalization will include landscaping and changes to regular maintenance practices, as well as updated protocols for record keeping. All of this is to ensure that the memory of our cemetery residents is preserved in a respectful and dignified manner.
This is an investment we are proud to make: an investment in our Lynchburg community, so that our neighbors and friends are never lost to time. However, as a small, non-profit organization, we are relying on contributions from people like you to help us make these changes, and keep our cemetery beautiful and respectful for all. What is a “potter’s field”? Continue reading below. All extra funds raised will go to support the ongoing maintenance and support of Old City Cemetery.
