Hosted by LHD, Inc./Olde Towne Louisburg and in coordination with the Town of Louisburg, we are privileged to have Michael and Hilary Verville of Verville Preservation, offering this unique hands-on demonstration for our community. This is one of many steps we will be taking, to bring life back to our beautiful Oakwood Cemetery.

In taking this workshop you will come away with basic understanding and knowledge you need to care for your own headstone/memorial, by learning the tools and techniques in proper gravestone cleaning and care. Many historic gravestones have been destroyed due to untrained individuals and incorrect techniques. This is a hands on workshop where you will be working on actual stones that will be the same type of stones in your own cemetery.

This workshop is limited to only 20 participants. Ticket sales are final with no refunds, since this is a fund raising event for LHD, Inc. The cost of this workshop will be $50.
