This is a large cemetery with current burials.  It is mowed but the old section is not maintained. The old section is in the center and closest to the east side.  There are many large stack stones and almost all of them are leaning.  The stones look like they could fall over at any minute and are endangering people and themselves. There are a couple stack stones that have already toppled.  The tablet stones are also leaning and many have fallen or broken and are sinking into the ground face up.  There are whole rows of tablets that have fallen.  They are just being mowed over.  It is sad that a currently operating cemetery could be allowed to get into this condition.  This cemetery is in immediate need of restoration.
