Luper Cemetery north of Eugene will unveil a new monument over Memorial Day weekend. The stone was created to honor unmarked graves and markers that haven't survived.
The first burials at Luper Cemetery occurred in 1853. Over 160 people are buried at the site which is maintained by volunteers. President Peter Thurston says the monument is dedicated to 28 of the interred.
Thurston: "After five years of fixing things and taking care of the weeds and the cemetery. We determined there were a number of people that did not have a marker at the cemetery."
