Shelton Cemetery Faces Uncertain Future


A local cemetery is left with an uncertain future, after Buffalo County voted to dissolve townships.

The Shelton cemetery was named after a Buffalo County town, but it's located in Hall County. The location hasn't mattered because the Shelton Cemetery Association cared for the 12–acre plot of land, but when the Shelton Township dissolves on January 1st, so will a key funding source for the cemetery.

Association members who care for the cemetery are now scrambling to find a solution.
