Jewish Hill

Restoration of the half-acre Jewish Hill area includes restoring hardscape, addressing drainage issues, installing a new watering system, and adding interpretive components. The main objectives in Jewish Hill are to repair and re-set a variety of monuments and walls as well as make repairs to historic brick pathways. This area of the cemetery is particularly challenging given the way monuments are tightly packed together. The three phase project is fully funded in part by a generous grant from the Rich Foundation and the first two phases are complete.

Restoration Plan & Progress

Phase 1
Phase 1 of the Jewish Hill Project was a triage phase in which all dangerous hardscape issues were mitigated. We reset and leveled severely leaning monuments, rebuilt crumbling walls, and repaired badly damaged urns and tombstones. It was completed in late 2015.

Phase 2 and 3
Phase 2 and 3 divide the half-acre section in half. Phase 2, which began in 2017, included repair of walls and monuments on the western half of the section, as well as irrigation and restoration of brick pathways. Phase III began in late 2018. We anticipate its completion in early 2019.
