Cleanup at Richmond Cemetery to begin this week

Cleanup at a damaged cemetery will begin this week.

Vandals toppled several Civil War era tombstones at Richmond Cemetery earlier this month.

Now that Richmond Police have finished their on-site investigation ground crews will begin restoring the stones.

The cemetery board says it has received $700 in donations for the cleanup.

Cemetery managers are also working to improve security by replacing some fencing.
