OPPENHEIM -- The Oppenheim Historical Society recently placed about 70 new American flags on the graves of veterans buried in the town's 17 cemeteries. This has been done on an annual basis since 2007. Veterans from the American Revolution, the War of 1812, the Civil War, World Wars I and II, Korea and Vietnam are in Oppenheim's cemeteries.

Students from the Oppenheim Ephratah-St. Johnsville Middle School assisted in Brown Cemetery, the largest in the town.
