This image, shared with us a few years ago by Mr. Chris Hill, is what we strive towards with the restoration of the grounds of the former IOOF Cemetery.
Sometime during the 1940’s from the second story window of a home that once stood at 436 South Chestnut Street this photograph was taken.
This is the only picture we have been able to locate that shows the former IOOF Cemetery in all of it’s beauty, before the vandalism and disrepair befell the grounds.
**correction — The Picture was originally taken circa 1957 by R. Lewis Hill, our apologies for incorrectly dating it from the 1940’s. The Picture was originally shared Dec 26 2015 in the Facebook Group l.O.O.F Cemetery (Former), Clarksburg WV by Chris Hill
