Oak Ridge Cemetery Foundation

The mission of the Oak Ridge Cemetery Foundation is to maintain, preserve, and enhance all that is in its domain to honor this living memorial.

Month: November, 2015

The bell tower controller is installed and functioning!

We have it programmed to toll once on the half hour and toll hourly beginning at 7 a.m. and ending at 9 p.m. The hourly tolls will reflect the time……7 chimes for 7 a.m. 8 for 8 a.m. etc.

 Thank you Oak Ridge Cemetery Foundation and members for once again enhancing Oak Ridge Cemetery through your personal and financial support! -Mike Lelys

Current Project- New Signs

Among the Foundation’s current projects is an effort to address the aging signage throughout the cemetery, including informative graphics about select gravesites, notable areas, and historic trees, as well as cohesive wayfinding signs to simplify navigation throughout the grounds. We have also worked to bring the signage at Oak Ridge into the mobile-friendly age. The new signs will include “Quick-Read” codes that smartphones of every make and model can scan to find beautiful photographs and biographical information of people, trees, and locations. With your generous support, this project will bring the history of Oak Ridge to life for a new generation of amateur historians!
