NORWOOD - The restoration of a centuries-old Bergen County cemetery is now complete.

The project at Haring Cemetery in Norwood took seven years and $36,000 to finish.

"This restoration certainly accomplishes two purposes," said Robert Garner of the Neighborhood Coalition. "It protects the dignity of the cemetery and its historic importance and helps preserve it for posterity. It also provides the neighbors with the landscaping and protection for property values that we need as well."

Many of the headstones date back to the 1700s.
