Legacy Projects > Greenbush Cemetery Restoration Project Greenbush Cemetery Restoration Project

The goal of this project is the restoration/preservation of Greenbush Cemetery. It is the home of five Revolutionary War Veterans, War of 1812 Veterans, and over 200 Civil War Veterans (Confederate and Union). It was founded in 1848 by men such as John Purdue. There are over 10,000 burials at the Cemetery including most of Lafayette’s earliest settlers, including our founder William Digby. It is also the final resting place of five United States Congressman/senators. Many sunken, broken, and dirty grave markers are being restored with the hope that the work will ‘piece together the puzzle’ and bring the Cemetery back to its original park-like setting
