This cemetery is fenced, mowed, but not maintained.  There is an extreme amount of growth, especially yuccas, around and enveloping the stones.  The west side is almost completely overgrown.  The west row of gravestones is disappearing into the woods. Many stones are not mowed around.  There are also many fallen stones.  Lots of tablets are scattered around and are sinking face up.  Large stack stones have fallen (or been pushed by vandals) and allowed to sink into the ground.  A couple have fallen toward the ravine and may roll down. Towards the road there are many flat concrete stones embedded in the ground, perhaps to mark unmarked graves.  This cemetery is in very poor condition.  The noxious growth needs to be cut back and serious restoration needs to be undergone to prevent further damage to the stones.
