MainStreet Irwinton is doing our part to honor the past and spotlight a beautiful piece of Irwinton's history as we work to restore the Irwinton Cemetery. Currently, the city is maintaining the grass cutting, but there is so much more to do.
This is where community involvement is going to come into play. MainStreet Irwinton needs the community to help us with any of the history you have or know of involving the cemetery. Photos, burial records, letters, even family stories are what we would like to preserve in digital format.
We also need donations, currently it takes about $6,000 to take care of the mowing. MainStreet is making this our first goal.
We will keep you updated on our progress. Together we can spotlight this beautiful piece of Irwinton's history.
If you would like to donate to the Irwinton Cemetery, please make checks payable to the City of Irwinton.
Checks may be mailed to City of Irwinton, PO Box 359, Irwinton, GA 31042. Checks may also be dropped off at CIty Hall.
