A Historic Cemetery Experiences $1 Million in Vandalism

VandalGreen Lawn Cemetery in Ohio has war heroes, five governors, and the grandfather of President George H.W. Bush memorialized on its property. But now, the cemetery has fallen victim to attacks from vandals, who have damaged over 600 memorials in less than two years. Recently, vandals have marred eight gravesites, which includes a century-old mausoleum. The damage overall has topped $1 million. Due to the attacks, the cemetery started a GoFundMe page to help with cleanup, raising $4,000.
