New group aims to preserve sacred spaces

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A new network geared towards preserving sacred spaces is coming to Louisville.

Preservation Louisville and Louisville Non-Profits Friends of Eastern Cemetery Monday announced the formation of a local network called "Sacred Spaces."

The group will bring together people who are interested in restoring historic spaces such as cemeteries, churches and church school buildings.

Friends of the Eastern Cemetery say they hope their efforts to improve that cemetery will hopefully inspire others to embark on similar initiatives.

The program's founders say the cemetery is a great example of what volunteers can do.

"They have done so much in such a short amount of time that it really does prove that a small group of concerned volunteers, thoughtful citizens, can really move mountains," said Marianne Zickuhr, executive director of Preservation Louisville.

Anyone interested is welcome to join the network.

The program will not require funding, but donations are accepted.
