Hodges Cemetery in Mt. Olive Threatened by Development

Hodges Cemetery is located on Hodges Cemetery Road in Mt. Olive. It dates to at least 1887 and was started by W. L. Hodges. Kathy Hodges Young, a descendant, is working to preserve and maintain the cemetery. There are currently 33 marked burials, but it is believed there could be 133-135 total burials.
