Working in partnership with the City of Lawrence Parks and Recreation Department, the newly formed DCHS Oak Hill Program Committee will provide preservation advice, continue long-standing programs like cemetery tours and cleanup days, and develop new ways to help the public experience and appreciate this historic place.
