Maple Park Cemetery – A Gateway to History

Anouncing the fall fundraiser for Maple Park Cemetery: A GATEWAY TO HISTORY. Discover Springfield events of the 1800s and join us for an old-fashioned fence raising party on Saturday, September 25, 2021, at 3pm. You’ve heard of barn-raising parties when a community would gather to build a barn for their neighbor. At Maple Park, our beautiful iron fence that borders Grand is in need of a hand from the community. But instead of raising the actual fence, we’ll be raising funds that will be used for the restoration. The event will be held under a canopy tent at the cemetery south of the gazebo. Tickets are $50 per person.
