Hilton Head group pushes to restore island's oldest structure

The Baynard Mausoleum in the Zion Chapel of Ease cemetery on Hilton Head Island is in danger of collapsing.

The Baynard Mausoleum is photographed on Friday. The oldest intact structure on Hilton Head Island could soon get a facelift. A historic-preservation group is asking the federal government for a grant to restore the Baynard Mausoleum, a 160-year-old stone building in the Zion Chapel of Ease cemetery at Mathews Drive and William Hilton Parkway. The Heritage Library Foundation wants money to seal and restore the roof of the building, which leaks and is covered by a tarp. Foundation members also hope to repair and seal the sandstone, vine-covered walls. Students from the Savannah College of Art and Design?s architecture program would help with the work.
