Preserving Our Yesterdays for Tomorrow 

 Help Save Historic Woolsey Church!


The landscaping project includes a memorial garden outside of the cemetery fence where the unmarked graves are located, providing a place for reflection. White-flowering, heirloom plants sourced from local families will be planted in the garden. If you'd like to volunteer or have any white flowers from your garden that you'd like to donate, please contact us.  

Gardens symbolize happiness, salvation, purity, and a place of peace and spiritual refreshment
