April 24, 2023 LCHS Program



"Documenting and Restoring Our Heritage" is the title of the program for the meeting of the Lawrence County Historical Society on Monday, April 24, 7:00 p.m., at the History Center in Lawrenceville. For the past year, Historical Society members and other volunteers have undertaken the clean- up of several rural cemeteries, and the restoration of lost and damaged gravestones. In addition, volunteers have researched and documented the lives of those buried in these cemeteries. The presentation will include before-and-after photographs of some of the work to date. John Fish, a professional stone restorer, will be in attendance to explain the process of cleaning and repairing old gravestones. The meeting is free, and open to the public.
