The Morris Cemetery, also known as the Monte Sano Cemetery, is located in a residential section of Augusta at 1901 Wrightsboro Rd.
On Nov. 3, Historic Augusta named it to its Endangered Properties List. The abandoned cemetery is overgrown and in need of repair. City records do not pinpoint an owner of the property.
Erick Montgomery with Historic Augusta said at the Nov. 3 press conference that he’d be interested in finding a civic group to help with its upkeep.
Over the years, vandalism and neglect has taken its toll on the cemetery. Many notable Augusta families are buried in the cemetery and headstones date back nearly 200 years.
