Headstone Cleaning Class
Saturday, July 20th, 2024
10 a.m. - 12 noon

meet @ Morgan Hose Building,
22 Mill Street Street, Naples, NY 14512

The Proper Cleaning of Historic Gravestones will cover the proper, conservator approved, methods of cleaning all types of gravestones. We will also focus on the common methods that actually damage the stones. All the conservator approved chemicals, tools, and techniques for a successful "Do No Harm" cleaning will be discussed.

After registration and introduction to the proper cleaning of historic gravestones in the Morgan Hose Building, we will travel to Fairview Cemetery for hands on cleaning of some historic headstones.

Our presenter is Dave Bloom, a member of the Naples Historical Society and a self-proclaimed cemetery hound who calls himself “The Gravestone Guy”. He is presently working with NHS Board Member Ken Poole restoring Sutton Family gravestones in the West Hollow Cemetery, Naples.
