Friends of Abandoned Cemeteries, Inc. under the guidance of its executive director, Lynn Rogers, has restored eleven abandoned cemeteries. The cemeteries date from the year 1630 and include a Native American Lenape burial ground. Once dreaded blights, these sites have been converted into welcoming landscapes with unique historical and educational value. In this lecture, Ms. Rogers will explore the gras-roots efforts that led to their recovery.
