From the Director

During the storms of October 20th, 2019,  Plano's Young Cemetery received major damage. Many trees are down, and the fence on the east and south  side was destroyed. The worst damage was to the Gravestone of "Alicia  Young" which shattered the tablet.

We are working with Young Family Cemetery Association, City of Plano, and Texas Cemetery Restoration to assess and move forward.  Another historic cemetery, Rowlett Creek, also received significant damage.

All donations to our PayPal, large or small, will help us clean up and restore these two historic cemeteries. 

Thanks for your support,

Jeff Campbell
