Historic Site Management Grant
Grant Award: $21,750 (2005) Grant Recipient: Historical and Educational Lodge-Hall Preservatory County: GloucesterMunicipality: Woolwich Township
Located in one of the fastest growing communities in South New Jersey, the once isolated burial ground is threatened by erosion caused by over development and insensitive farming boundaries. The Trust grant will assist the preparation of an archaeological report that will identify the size of the cemetery, note the number and condition of gravesites, and correctly identify the cemetery boundaries in order to protect the site from further encroachment. The document will make recommendations for stabilizing the site and the remaining headstones.
