 Village Cemetery Clean-up Day - Saturday, June 17, 8:00 am - 12:00 pm (postponed due to weather)

The Vermont Old Cemetery Association, in cooperation with the Green Mountain Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) and the Town of Richmond Cemetery Commission, have scheduled a clean-up of the Richmond Village Cemetery for Saturday, June 17 from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Volunteers are invited to attend and will be provided with training beginning at 8:00. Work will involve cleaning old grave markers with a special solution (provided) that will not cause damage to the stone, and resetting stones as needed. Bring work gloves, a plastic-bristled brush, and a spray bottle; a stool or kneeling pad, snacks and water also may be helpful.

The cemetery was chosen by the DAR chapter for a work project because it is the site of the burial of at least 5—and perhaps 8—Revolutionary War soldiers. They include very early residents of Richmond, such as Daniel Robbins and Daniel Bishop. They came from Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island—several of them lived first in New Hampshire, before settling in Vermont, and they served in the lines of these states.
