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 on three (3) consecutive Saturdays in May.  Along with the hands-on workshop, attendees will also get a brief tour and history of the cemetery.  

When: Saturday, May 13th, 20th and 27th, from 10am to noon, weather permitting.

If needed, a rain date will be the Sunday following. (May 14th, 21st and 28th from 10am to 12pm)

Where: Marietta City Cemetery, 420 West Atlanta St. Marietta, GA 30064

Cost: $25 for not-yet members, $15 for members

Capacity: limit 10 people for the May 13th Workshop, 15 people for the May 20th and 27th workshop.

Tickets can be purchased through the Museum’s online store, which can be found on our website  You can also find the link on our Facebook page.  

MHC Mission: We ignite curiosity in Marietta’s History by connecting people through compelling stories and engaging experiences. For more information, call 770-794-5710 or visit
