GreenwoodStatues5.standalone.prod_affiliate.58 The Fort Worth Star-Telegram has a really interesting article about some recent additions to Greenwood Cemetery’s mausoleum:

The eight life-size statues of the Founding Fathers in Independence Chapel at Greenwood Memorial Park were hand-carved in Italy from Carrara marble and stand on ornate pedestals.

Quite a few of my ancestors are buried at Greenwood Cemetery. Looks like they are in honored company!
