Uncovering Stones to Discover Your Past

Join Gibraltar Historical Association to discover the best practices for headstone care and find what lies beneath the moss, lichens, and debris. The program is a part of Heritage Alliance History Days.
Our presentation will include “Headstone Care” and those who are buried here. We will show the use of the proper tools and cleaning products, tips on cemetery etiquette, and who owns the headstones. Should your family be a descendant that knows more about any of the names listed, we would love to make a connection.
