Historic Cemetery Vandalized
The Ebenezer Church in Jessamine County was one of the first churches in Kentucky. On its property is the Ebenezer Cemetery,. A historic site with more than 150 tombstones, some of which belong to Revolutionary War and Civil War soldiers.
Some of the tombstones date back to the 1700's.
"This site is on the historic register", says Jeff Smith, a trustee and caretaker at the church. However, this quiet place has recently been disrupted. "Between Saturday night and Sunday morning", says Smith.
More than a dozen headstones were knocked over, vandalized, and destroyed over the weekend.
Jeff Smith says it's not what he ever wanted to see. "It kinda hurts my feelings someone would come out here and destroy things. It's disgusting", says Smith. Smith says not only did people destroy the headstones of people he knows, they also broke into the church. "They used a cinder block trying to break the door down. When that didn't work they tried to kick the door in", says Smith.
