The Rebirth Of A Cemetery

But Olivewood has been sinking into the bayou for decades now, and most of the cemetery is inaccessible because of the overgrowth. Some folks are trying to do something about that. They headed out there recently to do some clean-up, and here's a slideshow on it.
Tomorrow, the cemetery will be dedicated as a historical site, with Mayor Bill White and US Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee expected to be on hand (now that the grunt work of cleaning itup is done).
