Condition Back to Top
The Oak Grove Cemetery sits surrounded (oddly enough) by pine trees, just Northeast of the intersection of 79 and Oak Grove Road North. The ground and some stones are almost obscured by the falling pine needles and made some photos a challenge. This cemetery is very much active at this time but also shows a long history. Some stones are not in the best shape, but this is a small blemish on its appearance. The cemetery seems to be cared for on an irregular basis, at least, if not regularly. Overall, condition is good.
