Between Fences: The History of Clinton Cemetery

The Clinton cemetery has long served as a recreational area for Clinton. Children go there to sled, ride their bicycles, and play on the baseball diamond; teenagers first learn how to drive on its roads; and many people use it as a place to walk their dogs.

Given this use, and the fact that the cemetery has been moved more than once, the Vespasian Warner Public Library will explore the land-use theme of the Between Fences exhibition, asking the question: What makes land sacred?

Joey Woolridge, a local historian and author, will present on the history of Clinton’s cemetery.
