Historical Marker in 
West Hill Cemetery

from : Catherine Caldwell

Excerpt taken from the Black Friday book about West Hill Cemetery

Read a newspaper article about that day.

"Tombstones of great size and height were blown to the ground, and many of them were shattered. A piece two feet long from a marble shaft was found a mile north. ....At one grave the stone was blown down and a delicated vase of flowers was left sitting on the mound, at another, iron vessels were carried away while delicated rose bowls were left."
