The Cemetery Advisory Committee is sponsoring a workshop by the National Park Service

Gravestone Preservation Workshop

First Parish Burying Ground, Gloucester, MA

The event is raising funds for the Christopher P Robinson International Preservation Trades Exchange Scholarship which will support preservationists who want to travel overseas to expand their skills and knowledge.  June 16 and/or 17, 8-4. $85 for one day or $150 for both. Project of the National Park Service, sponsored by the Gloucester Cemetery Advisory Committee.  Pre-registration required.

  • What a historic resting place and a great cause here! Our elementary teachers would take us here to record the graves and history classes (respectful that it was a final resting place. The outdoor classes are very educational and hands-on big impact to the students. I am happy to see this practice is still taught in many schools! 🙂 Dave
