Preserving, Restoring, Operating and Maintaining Olivewood Cemetery


We greatly value our donors and would like to offer our thanks to each contributing organization and individual. We have dedicated the space below to acknowledge our current and past contributors by name.

Additionally we want to acknowledge and thank Dr. Carol McDavid, not only for her archaeological assistance, but for the Olivewood Cemetery inspired quilt design that we use in our logo.
