Glendale Cemetery Association

Glendale Cemetery Association, Inc. was formed in 1952 by several "oldtimers" from the Harrisburg area who were distressed about the deplorable conditions at the old cemetery. The first officers were Murray Aubert, President; Lottie Turley Ramsey, Secretary; and Bessie Aubert, Treasurer.

Objectives of the organization were listed as:

  1. Rescue old cemetery
  2. Maintain old cemetery
  3. Restore it to its former beauty
  4. Establish perpetual care fund
  5. Operate as an heritage and historical society for Old Town Harrisburg

Those objectives remain a part of the Association's by-laws.

Officers and Board Members

The Glendale Cemetery Association is an all-volunteer organization. Officers and board members are elected from the membership and serve two-year and three-year terms, respectively.
