Location: Adirondack History Museum
Cost: $20 for ECHS, WHS members, and town historians/$25 everyone else

The Adirondack History Museum in Elizabethtown will host a Cemetery Conservation Workshop for its annual Historian’s Day. Presenter Joe Ferrannini, a conservator of Grave Stone Matters, will speak on preservation, conservation and restoration issues faced within cemeteries, and then take workshop attendees to the Riverside Cemetery (next door to Museum) and demonstrate practical techniques.

Lunch is included with workshop fee. The workshop takes place rain or shine, and participants should dress for the weather. Attendees with issues standing for long periods of time are asked to bring a folding chair for their comfort at the cemetery. The event is co-sponsored by Essex County Historical Society and Wilmington Historical Society.
