Fifth Greenhouse is Built

December 10, 2011

In 1971, the Cemetery demolished the existing greenhouses to make way for more burial space in conjunction with a smaller greenhouse complex.  Construction of smaller, more efficient greenhouses was started in early spring with the initial site grading.  The caretaker’s house was moved intact to its new site in the work area during the summer, and by the end of 1971 the new greenhouses were occupied and in operation. The old greenhouses were ready for demolition at the end of the year.
