The Greenwood Cemetery Society

There have been various articles in local newspaper about cemeteries in surrounding towns having financial troubles that make proper care of the cemeteries challenging. Greenwood Cemetery in Tuckerton is a case in point. The cemetery has been looking unkempt lately, and local citizens have rallied to attend meetings to strengthen and give support to the Cemetery Board to improve the appearance of the cemetery. Hopefully, their efforts will be successful.

The problem of keeping Greenwood Cemetery looking presentable is an old problem which led to the formation of the  Greenwood Cemetery Society in 1928. 

The Greenwood Cemetery Society sometime back morphed into the Tuckerton Old Home Society which maintains Greenwood Cemetery today. I am unaware of when and how this happened. Perhaps someone out in the Blog-O-Sphere, can shed some light on the situation.
