Cedar Hill Cemetery Vandalized

Vandals hit the historic Cedar Hill Cemetery in Princeton, Caldwell County, Kentucky last weekend, damaging a number of old tombstones. The damages have been estimated at over $100,000.

Richard P'Pool, a local historian, is attempting to repair these broken tombstones the same way he did when vandals struck the cemetery in 2005.

Among the damaged tombstones is the one for Evelyn Groom shown below as it looked in March 2011. Following the work of the vandals, the tombstone was broken into several pieces and lying face down on the ground. Information on this vandalism should be reported to the Princeton Police Department.
