Upcoming Cemetery Preservation Workshop

Join us for an MTSU Cemetery Preservation Workshop at the historic downtown Smithville Cemetery on Saturday, October 20th. Center research professor Stacey Graham will present information about historic cemeteries in Tennessee starting at 9:00 a.m. at the Smithville City Hall. Afterwards, participants will learn proper techniques for cleaning tombstones and then experience the hands-on portion of the workshop by scrubbing tombstones themselves. This event is free, but due to limited supplies, please contact Stacey Graham to register for attendance. Here, MTSU Public History graduate students Elizabeth Foster Morris (left) and Typhanie Schafer scrub tombstones in the historic Cane Ridge Presbyterian Church graveyard in March 2018.
