Behind-the-Stones Preservation Tour
July 22 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pmFree
Join the Behind the Stones tour for an exclusive look at past and ongoing preservation and restoration efforts. This 75-minute walking tour discusses and visits several of types of physical preservation efforts – from the repair of small, badly broken headstones to the stabilization of dangerously leaning obelisks weighing several thousand pounds. Guests will also see examples of restoration, which involves intervening to return a monument, headstone, or structure to its original appearance or condition.
This tour meets at the main gate. Please arrive a few minutes early to check in with the volunteer at the Visitor Center located adjacent to the main gate.
