Who are we and what is our goal
The Historic Clarksburg WV Cemetery Preservation Alliance started off as a volunteer community effort in September 2011. The experiences we have gained over these years has become the pivotal foundation for the formation and growth of our mission.
The HCWVCPA's mission is to honor and commit to the perpetual care other organizations have once guaranteed, but are no longer able to provide. Our organization takes extreme pride in honoring the memories of those no longer living by caring for their final resting places as if it were one of our loved ones. We do vast research into the history of each marker and make publicly available what information we find. This not only helps restore our history by identifying markers, it plays a huge role in restoring peace of mind to living relatives.
By maintaining and restoring the grounds and markers the community at large gets the chance to celebrate these testaments of such a rich heritage West Virginia has to offer. Our goal is to ensure that all of our locations are well maintained for generations to come so that those who are laid to rest at our locations are never forgotten.
