This page is to honor those dedicated individuals who have shown a real concern & care for tombstone & cemetery preservation. These wonderful individuals have dedicated their time & monies over the years to ensure the preservation of our history. This type of work can be a very time consuming task of research & then physically searching. These people are the Sherlock Holms & Indiana Joneses of our preservation efforts & we wish to say THANK YOU.
Our Honor Roll Of Conservators
Robert is a professional cemetery conservator & a Pennsylvania native that has been trained through the Campbell Center for Historic Preservation Studies. He also regularly attends classes & workshops put on by other top conservators in the field to stay on the cutting edge of cemetery preservation.
Even though this work is mainly centered on one specific cemetery’s restoration, we feel through the sheer amount of work being done, that it qualifies Andy Harpole & his group as up & coming conservators. Andy & his folks have taken professional cemetery conservator training from Jonathan Appell & continue to gain more knowledge every season.
Andy Harpole has a model cemetery preservation program going on. He & his group of volunteers have taken on a tremendous project by working to restore The Eastern Cemetery.
A multi-piece monument repair.
We love what you folks are doing & we wish you much continued success.
Over the last 25+ years Jonathan Appell has worked in nearly every aspect of cemeteries and graveyards, providing him with a unique understanding of both the subterranean and visible elements.
