Please call ahead for an appointment. We are all volunteers except our groundsmen/caretakers. We have two men who mow and take care of the grounds in general. Caretakers cannot answer questions or find graves. Volunteers do this.

We now have a grave finding fee of $25.
This fee goes to the Woodlawn Foundation not to the volunteers.



Woodlawn published a collection of columns written over a 30 year period by Fairmont Times editor  C.E. "Ned" Smith from 1926 to 1957.

The book is entitled "Good Morning"  Local Historian Dr. Raymond Alvarez selected the columns and designed the publication as part of Woodlawn's preservation efforts.

The books are available by contacting Woodlawn Board President, Nancy Bickerstaff at nbicky5@yahoo.com.

Cost of the book is $5.00 plus $2.00 shipping and handling, or contacting Nancy to pick up a book.

All profits from the sale of the book will be earmarked for future Historical Projects.

Your support of Woodlawn projects is very much appreciated!

Good Morning
