The awareness panel is located next to the cemetery office. This site was selected toincrease public awareness of the gravesite which is located behind the chapel andcemetery building and not visible from most locations in the cemetery. The 2005 Reportnoted that the black metal stand was rusting at the back and that one of the screws thatattached the interpretive panel to the frame was missing.

The black metal stand should be scraped, sanded and repainted and themissing bolt should be replaced.
