Historic Gravestone preservation WORKSHOP
SATURDAY & SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 18 - 19, 2021
9AM - 4PM
Oak Grove Cemetery, Morgantown
PAWV is partnering with Monument Cleaning & Repair, a volunteer group in Morgantown, to sponsor a two-day historic gravestone preservation workshop with Atlas Preservation. The location will be the Historic Oak Grove Cemetery located near Don Knotts Blvd. in Morgantown.
During the workshop, we will be learning to conserve sandstone gravestones, and we will conserve, stabilize, and clean a group of gravestones and monuments. We will be working directly on the grounds of the cemetery, in which all of the most common conditions encountered will be discussed, and the conservation treatments will be conducted which are representative of what is most common at the cemetery.
This workshop is FREE! We ask that all participants be MASKED. Lunch will not be provided so plan to bring your own. Please register for the workshop so we can communicate any updated information with you.
