Cemetery

The very first Cemetery in early Edinburgh was on the slope of the Thompson hill at the west edge of the little village.  Here lie buried Mrs. Joseph Townsend the first white settler to die in Johnson County and Richard Conner their graves forever hidden in the hill which may also contain earlier Indian burials.  Other early settlers were buried on the hill, but most were later moved to the newly established Edinburg Burying Ground.  The Thompson family plot still remains at the top of the hill its future preservation and obligation of the Edinburg School Board in return for playground property deeded to the school by a Thompson heir the late Mrs. Imogene McEwen.

About 1850 it was decided to establish a new burial ground, and on the 22nd of March 1852, the Trustees of the Edinburgh Burying Ground bought land for this purpose from Alexander and Rebecca Thompson Breeding.  The price was $300.00 for four and a half acres this property is now Section A Breeding Addition Rest Haven Cemetery. The notary for the transaction was Charles W. Show, and names of the trustees appearing in the deed are EDMOND MOONEY, JAMES THOMPSON, AUSTIN SHIPP, WILLIAM P. SIMS AND WILLIAM H. MITCHELL.

The Edinburgh Fire & Rescue was founded in 1875. One of the early firehouses was located at 107 S. Holland St., the current location of the Town Hall. It housed a horse drawn fire apparatus. In 1962 the Fire Department moved into a new firehouse located at 203 S. Walnut St. on the corner of Walnut & Thompson St. In 1974 the Fire Department started the ambulance service and began transporting patients to the Emergency Room. The Fire Department now operates a 24-hour BLS service utilizing two ambulances and firefighters trained to the EMT level. In 1975 an addition was added to the Fire Station that doubled the size. This addition included offices and additional bay areas. Station 1 now serves as Fire Headquarters.

Station 2, located off East S.R. 252 at 600 Mary Drybread Ct was constructed using grant money obtained by the Town. In 1991 a local donation supported the construction of an additional 2 bays onto the South end of Station 2.

Police Department

CHILD PASSENGER SAFETY

Since approximately 85% of child safety seats are being misused nationally, the Indiana State Police encourages parents to take a few extra minutes to ensure their children are restrained properly.


Indiana’s Child Restraint Law:

All children under the age of 8 must be properly restrained in a child safety seat or booster seat according to the child restraint system manufacturer’s instructions. Many parents are confused about the law, so troopers want to help explain the proper and legal way to restrain their children.

  • Children under the age of one-year and less than 20 lbs. MUST be restrained in a rear-facing child safety seat. Many newer seats will restrain a child rear-facing up to 30-35 lbs. Troopers encourage parents to keep their children rear-facing as long as possible.
  • Children that are at least one-year old and 20 lbs. may be restrained in a forward-facing child safety seat with an internal harness system.
  • Children at least 30 lbs. may use a booster seat, but troopers encourage parents to keep their children restrained in a forward-facing seat until at least 40 lbs.
  • Indiana law requires all children under the age of eight to use a child restraint system in accordance with the child restraint system manufacturer’s instruction, which are based upon the child’s height and weight. The child restraint system normally used by children in this age group is the booster seat.
  • All children under the age of 16 must be properly restrained either by using a seat belt or a child restraint system, to include a booster seat.

Indiana State Police would like to remind parents and others who transport children the following safety tips:

  • Child safety seats must be properly secured to the vehicles seat belt or LATCH system and should not move side to side or forward more than one-inch.
  • Children should stay rear-facing until one-year of age and 20 lbs.
  • The retainer clip that connects the two shoulder harness straps must be kept at the child’s armpit level.
  • Harness straps must be kept snug.

Before your water is connected, please check to ensure all water outlets, both inside and out, are turned off to prevent water damage, which could occur from open faucets.

UNEXPECTED WATER PROBLEMS
Should you experience a water leak, frozen water line, or other unexpected disruption of service, please be aware the property owner will be responsible for any necessary repairs to the water lateral existing on the property side of the metering pit. In order to expedite diagnosing where the problem may exist, property owners and residents should familiarize themselves with their water service equipment, shutoff points and where any service lines may exist on your property.
