Cemetery Walk Event on September 19

Thomas Jefferson Gardens is sponsoring a Cemetery Walk on Sunday, September 19, 2021 beginning at 2:00pm. Dianne and Mike Piepel will be our guides. The walk will begin at the Welcome Center with a description of what you will be seeing; such as unusual headstones, the type of stone used and the symbolism carved on them. We will then travel (walking or by car) to the Jefferson Cemetery where a short narrative history of prominent and interesting citizens will be given. Be sure to bring a lawn chair and water bottle with you. Some of the headstones you will see are listed below:
Julien Geneva: Builder of the present day courthouse and high school most
recently used as a middle school.
John Gray: Farmer and tiling expert. He was an officer during the Civil War.
Mildred Culbertson: Her headstone came from Italy.
Yankee Robinson: Owner of one of the largest circuses on the road.
William Anderson: One of the first pioneers to Greene County.
Hall and Mary Turrill: Superintendents of schools. Their headstone is unique.
Mahlon Head: Established the first bank in Greene County and was elected as
the first mayor of Jefferson.
