Cleaning Up for the President

Lancaster’s Woodward Hill Cemetery, site of the Trick or Trot run, is perhaps better known as the final resting place of President James Buchanan. On Arbor Day, April 24, 2015, a volunteer crew from Arborist Enterprises spent the day cleaning up the cemetery around the President’s grave, clearing fallen trees and branches, and pruning trees and shrubs.

The next day, April 25, LancasterHistory.org held an event to commemorate President James Buchanan’s 224th birthday, with a wreath laying, speakers (including Lancaster Mayor Rick Gray), tours of President Buchanan’s home and cake.
