Former Clarksburg IOOF Cemetery

April 21st 2018 Cleanup

The Harrison County WV Historical Society and the Historic Clarksburg WV Cemetery Preservation Alliance partnered on a cemetery cleanup at the Former I.O.O.F Cemetery in downtown Clarksburg.

Volunteers were led by Historical Society AmeriCorps member Sydney Stapleton on how to properly clean historic gravestones using D-2, a solution created and used by the National Parks Service to clean national monuments. Volunteers also worked to reset fallen headstones throughout the cemetery.

This event was free for volunteers to attend and lunch was donated by Washington Square Pizzeria and Lounge located at 216 Washington Ave, Clarksburg WV.

The event was documented by Barbara Barron of BarbaraLea Photography.
