Hyden Cemetery Needs Financial Boost

In late April of 2018, the Kentucky Veterans Cemetery South East opened along Highway 421 in Hyden. The cemetery is meant to be a final resting place for veterans in a 75-mile radius of the cemetery.”We’re the last cemetery to be formed in the state of Kentucky for the veterans but I want us to be the most beautiful,” said Vaughda Wooten, the director of the cemetery.. Lately, the amount of people coming by has slowed, causing issues for the cemetery.The staff at the area have been working on multiple projects as part of the cemetery’s completion, but they continue to need more money to do so.
