Cemetery Preservation Workshop
Saturday, July 9, 9am
108 South Barnstead Road
Interested in that old cemetery that abuts your property? Then this might be for you!
The Barnstead Historical Society, with support of the Trustees of the Trust Fund, is sponsoring a free Cemetery Preservation Workshop. On July 9, volunteers from the New Hampshire Old Graveyard Association will demonstrate techniques for cleaning old stones, different epoxies that are safe to use on a variety of stones (talc, soap stone, granite), and the proper way to straighten and align crooked stones,
Join us at the Center Cemetery, located behind the Fire Station and Town Hall. Attendees are asked to bring nylon brushes (no metal as this will permanently damage stones), gloves and shovels.
