Dragoon Benny Harris is heading up a clean-up of the historic old Indian Hills Cemetery on Golson Road (County Road 86) in Prattville AL. The work days are listed below. See if you can come and help out. Bring any trimmers, chain saws, mowers, and anything else you have, or just bring willing hands to do the work.
Directions to get to Indian Hills Cemetery: From the junction of Highways 82 and 14 in west Prattville, go north (toward Tuscaloosa) on Highway 82 for two miles. Turn left onto County Road 86. Go 1.6 miles and you'll see Indian Hills Cemetery on your left.
There are several Confederates buried in this cemetery, some of whom are on the original roster of the Prattville Dragoons.
Benny reports: I have identified six dates for cemetery clean-up days at the Indian Hills Cemetery between now and the end of the year. I will be working to secure the resources we will need in order to successfully restore this very historic cemetery to a respectable condition…..resources such as monument repair experts, money to purchase the monument repair supplies, brick masons to repair the brick walls, chain saw operators and a bucket truck to removed dead trees and problem trees, burn permits from the City, Boy Scout Troop participation for more manpower, etc. Camp members can plan to bring chain saws, rakes, lobbers, bush axes, weed eaters, etc. My target Cemetery Clean-up dates are…..
