Gravestone Cleaning Workshop

October 8 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


$20 – $25
Stanley-Whitman House, 37 High Street
Farmington, 06032


Roll up your sleeves, get dirty and learn all about Connecticut’s colonial graveyards from Ruth Shapleigh-Brown of CT Gravestone Network.

Stanley-Whitman House gravestone cleaning workshops run from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM and start with an orientation on cemetery preservation, maintenance of historic gravestones, an overview of Connecticut’s historic burying grounds and cemeteries, and symbolism and carver identification. A demonstration will highlight basic care of gravestones, including low-tech conservation do’s and don’ts, before splitting into smaller groups for a demonstration of hands-on-basic techniques. Materials will be provided. Parking is available at the Barney Library which is a short distance away from the Memento Mori Cemetery.
