Caring For The Historic Burying Grounds Of Bedford, New York

I've blogged a couple of times about the Friends of Bedford Burying Grounds, a foundation of volunteers whose mission is to work with the Town of Bedford, New York to preserve and conserve Bedford's historic burying grounds.  There are more burial grounds in Bedford than any other municipality in Westchester County, the oldest one dating to 1680.  This group works hard to clear land, clean gravestones, find lost stones, and repair broken ones.  To repair correctly, they enlist the expertise of Beyond the Gravestone, a husband and wife team who specialize in stone cleaning, repair, and plot care.  Please enjoy this blog about the good work being done in the cemeteries of Bedford.
