Both cemeteries are located in urban areas, one on flat land by water, the other on flat land. The cemeteries are isolated and separate but near other cemeteries with no sign, but Jewish symbols on gate/wall. The cemetery is reached and visible from a public road. Approx. number gravestones of any condition: 20-100 (maybe more.) Some stones were moved from one cemetery to the other. Vegetation is not a problem.

One cemetery has no use, with the other used for Jewish cemetery only. Adjacent properties are commercial/industrial. Diane Goldman ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
