Chapel Landscaping nears completion …

The landscaping at the 19th century restored chapel is being completed within the upcoming week. The project has been ongoing, under the careful direction of Board Vice-President, Pat Walters. The plan was created by an Historic Linwood Foundation member, Julia Lumpkin, and accepted by the Board in October 2008.

Ms. Lumpkin donated hollies and camellias, and contributions were made by other members to purchase junipers and orange tea olive plants. The planting and laying of the bricks are being contributed by Durty Works Co. in Columbus, GA. They have also given stone to complete a patio and walkway in the rear of the chapel. Bricks for the walkway were donated by Reaves Wrecking Co. in Columbus.

The Historic Linwood Board is grateful for all the dedication and care given by its members and friends. Without them, we would not be successful in our quest to make the cemetery a destination for people to visit whether they are local or out of town visitors.

The interested and dedicated persons who contribute to Linwood Cemetery continually strive to preserve this Historical destination in Columbus, GA.
