Oh the memories! I used to play in that graveyard as did all the kids in the West Hills neighborhood at the time (back in the early 70's). Ask Paul Shankman! He lived just 100 yards from it! I lived at the bottom of the hill but it was a blast to go up to the graveyard on a warm summer night full moon hanging high in the night sky to play ghost in the graveyard. Lots of other things happened there but I will not tell no tales! Just the ghosts there know who did what:-). I am so happy that they are saving the graveyard for future generations to see!

AHHH Progress...people move further and further out to get away from the city... and then viola they want bigger roads, better shopping, more bridges, fewer deer... why did you move out here in the first place. making these improvements will only encourage the expansion of the "element" you were trying to get away from.
yet you want to spend the city residents tax dollars to improve your roads WITHOUT VOTER APPROVAL yet when they put a county tax on the ballot to improve Metro.. you vote it down.. ironic...

Would you please give a more specific location of the cemetery. Can it be seen from a road? My ancesters came to this area in 1833. Many are buried in the Methodist Church cemetery at 141 and Manchester, but I cannot find the burial location of one person - my gread grandfather. Thanks.

I don't think any cemetary should be messed with. But its true people leave the city for a more country setting and turn country towns into cities and bring in all these big stores and run out all the family owned businesses that have been here for years. I like my town without all the fast foods, walgreens and walmart every block.
