Bluegrass memorial CEMETERY
What is the bluegrass memorial cemetery?
Originally, the people buried in the cemetery were buried in private property. However, around the time of WWII (1940's), the army decided to build a depot- the Bluegrass Army Depot- on the private properties and relocated all of those in the private cemeteries to the Bluegrass Memorial Cemetery. Up until the 1970's the army was paying to maintain the Bluegrass Memorial Cemetery but in the mid 1970's, the army decided to no longer pay for the maintenance. Also, the land that the graves are one was at one point handled board of trustees. The board was made up of people from each of the families that had a member in the new cemetery but after so many years, all of the members died and did not have any other family that was interested in maintaining the graves. Additionally, since the cemetery has been rediscovered, it was founded that the deed to the land was never passed on, so at the moment, no one owns the land.
