Stone conservator Joel C. Snodgrass will lead this three-day workshop for residents interested in the preservation, restoration and care of Southampton Town’s historic burying grounds. Presented as a 375th Anniversary event under the auspices of Sundy A.

town’s oldest surviving gravestones.

From gentle cleaning methods to reattaching fragments and resetting tilted headstones in danger of falling, Snodgrass will guide participants through many of the procedures

used by today’s conservation professionals.
