Preserving History Top: Te Hardwick plot prior to restoration efforts. Bottom: Te Hardwick plot aſter restoration efforts.

Local historic cemeteries provide a unique tie to the past that would otherwise be lost in the absence of a concerted restoration effort. With this in mind, the Old Magnolia Cemetery and the Old Cemetery have been the beneficiaries of recent efforts to preserve and restore Tomasville’s historic cemeteries.

Within the Old Cemetery, the Hardwick family plot was the first to be restored. Te grave markers, once covered by vegetation and soil, have been cleaned and cleared. Te walls, which began to crumble and collapse, have been rebuilt.
