Hill Cemetery, Shelbyville,
The ancient cast iron
gates at the entrance to Forest Hill cemetery, one of the community's landmarks,
were being torn down today and motorists probably will welcome the move.
Officials said the gates, which have been the consternation of many motorists
for many years, were built in the days of the horse and buggy and modern-day
vehicles are nearly unmanageable in approaching them.
