MARIETTA - The Marietta History Center is excited to continue its tombstone cleaning workshops to be held at the Marietta City Cemetery. Established in the early 1830s, the Marietta City Cemetery is the final resting place of many of Marietta and Cobb County citizens. The tombstones in the cemetery are artifacts and are often the only record of the person’s life, but many of these need to be cleaned. These hands-on workshops will help teach others the proper tools, products, and techniques to use to clean a tombstone, while doing no harm to the stone or the landscape.
The workshops will be offered once in October and once in November from 10am to noon. Tickets are $25 per person and each workshop is limited to 10 people. Along with the hands-on workshop, attendees will also get a tour and history of the cemetery.
When: Saturday, October 29th, and November 5th from 10am to noon, weather permitting.
If needed, a rain date will be the Sunday following. (October 30th and November 6th from 10am to 12pm)
Where: Marietta City Cemetery, 420 West Atlanta St. Marietta, GA 30064
Cost: $25 per person, limit 10 people per workshop
Tickets can be purchased through the Museum’s online store, which can be found on our website www.MariettaHistory.org. You can also find the link on our Facebook page.
