“Cemeteries hold the records of our ancestry carved in stone.” Our ancestors’ names appear on monuments and gravestones and either answer questions for us or create new ones. Through the years, mother-nature or human destruction takes a toll on the inscriptions and artistry found on these memorials.
Texas Cemetery Restoration LLC is working with individuals and cemetery associations to conserve and preserve these family monuments. Since 1997, they have leveled, cleaned and restored thousands of monuments in Texas cemeteries.
Almost all of their work is done onsite at the cemetery; rarely are monuments removed from the cemetery for preservation. This is to ensure that the monuments are not exposed to any more risk from handling and transporting than is necessary.
