LCRA as authorized by ACT No. 2007-408 of the Alabama Legislature has the authority to accept assistance of private citizens, corporations, organizations, foundations, etc, including money donated by these entities in order to afford restoration and upkeep of cemeteries designated as neglected. Chosen as the first cemetery to restore because of its deplorable condition. Lincoln Cemetery was established about 1903. It was one of the first commercial cemeteries for African Americans in Montgomery, an exact model of Greenwood which was for whites. Overtime it began to deteriorate and no clear title of ownership seems to be found. Even some part of the cemetery was sold to TV Channel 32 that contained graves.  The title is clouded. LCRA is seeking an immediate  grant to begin taking care of the most pressing concerns for the health and safety of the public.


A sponor can help bring the cemetery up to standard by donating time and money to the cleanup and upkeep.
