Blossom Hill Cemetery, WPA Restored Pool
Municipal reports from 1933-1942 detail PWA and WPA work on several local cemeteries. In 1933, the PWA spent nearly $5,000 on the following:
Fencing Blossom Hill Cemetery.
Crematory Blossom Hill Cemetery.
Drainage Blossom Hill Cemetery.
Grading Blossom Hill Cemetery, Maple Grove Cemetery,
Pine Grove Cemetery.
Water systems Maple Grove and Woodlawn Cemeteries.
The report states, “This work required a vast amount of time, as the federal government is very exact in detail and text.”
A 1939 report stated further that: “With the assistance of the WPA, the pond at Blossom Hill Cemetery was restored after many years of disuse. To further beautify this area, azaleas and rhododendrons were planted in the pine grove to the west of the pond.”
