The museum located at 415 Barren Springs Dr. is presenting the “Honoring Olivewood” Exhibit until May 29, 2016. This beautiful collection of photographs were taken by Ms.Kasey French who at the age of 16 was volunteering with her church group and asked how could she honor those interred in the cemetery, she decided to bring Olivewood to the public through photography.
