Preserving Our History

Stories of Cemetery Restoration in Oklahoma

This page is dedicated to the restoration of cemeteries in Oklahoma. Here you can find information about projects that have been submitted to us in the state, see before and after pictures of restored cemeteries, and of course, read the stories about each project. Please feel free to browse through the pictures that have been submitted, and to find a project to join in your area. In time, I will also gather and post information from experts about how to properly clean up and reset headstones, along with how to properly read those hard to read headstones without damaging the marker.

I am Sabrina Hitchcock, the Preserving Our History Coordinator. Your submissions to this page are greatly appreciated as well as the work that you have done to preserve the hallowed ground where those of our past now rest.

If you have pictures of a restoration project to share, please contact me. As always, when submitting pictures, please consult the How to Submit page.

If you are gathering up a team for a project and would like to post information on the upcoming projects page, please contact me so that I can add that information to the page as well.

NOTE: To those of you that have taken part in restorations, all of us at this site would like to give you a personal thank you. There is a lot of work involved in getting things organized and ready, and then there is a great amount of work involved in weeding, cleaning and resetting stones, etc. You are the backbone of what makes it possible for future generations to see these places and know some of the stories that these old cemeteries have to tell. Again, Thank you for all that you do!
