The Lincoln County Inmate work program has just completed restoration work at the South Beach Cemetery. This cemetery is not well known and is under the supervision of the Lincoln County Historical society. It is located just north of the "old drive in theater" off Ablone Street. The goal with this project was to open up the grounds and enhance the trail leading to the cemetery, which was achieved with the use of inmate labor. This project is another example of how our work program can benefit our community. All work was done by hand with the exception of the use of a chipper, which was partially donated by Newport Rental.
The South Beach Cemetery was first established as the Davis Family Cemetery in 1869. One of the first people buried there was the Davis' 4 year old daughter, Fanny Ann Davis. Through the years her large marker has disappeared and several more of the markers have been damaged or removed. We have no way of knowing when this occurred but hopefully with opening this area up, we can help maintain a vigil on the cemetery and keep it in the public's eye.
