New Oak Ridge Cemetery Gate Near Replica of Old Gate


Everyone knows someone buried at Oak Ridge Cemetery, whether it’s Abraham Lincoln or a family member and that’s what makes an unveiling of a new entrance Tuesday even more special.

 

The Oak Ridge Cemetery Foundation held a ceremony Tuesday morning to showcase the replica gate on Monument Avenue.

 

The new gate is a near replica of the original gate at the now blocked off 3rd Street entrance. Even the same company that forged the original gate had a hand in the new gate.

 

The Oak Ridge Cemetery Foundation still has plans to restore the 3rd Street entrance gate before a planned Lincoln Funeral Procession Reenactment in 2015.  Restoration of the old gate could cost upwards to $350,000.

 

Mayor Mike Houston says that will have to be raised privately because Government just doens't have the money to support something that size.
