Welcome to The Benton Avenue Cemetery Association
Please help at our 18th Annual Clean-up, which will be held on Saturday May 14, 2016 from 8 until 3.
Our mission is to preserve, maintain, and enhance in perpetuity the historic integrity and sanctity of Benton Avenue Cemetery, to provide for the respect and dignity of Lewis and Clark County's early pioneers, descendants and friends.
The Association meets on the third Tuesday of every month at 7 pm, usually at the library, and we welcome all to join our group. We have repaired many damaged and vandalized grave markers, and this work continues. We maintain the grounds in keeping with a pioneer cemetery. We have installed a drip system, and have planted trees along the original wagon road. We have established an endowment which, when fully funded, will assure a permanent source of income for the cemetery. To raise funds, we have held "Tales from Underground," a series of skits featuring re-enactments of some of the cemetery's inhabitants.
For more details on upcoming work days, restoration projects, and how
