Civil War Preservation Grant
We applied for a matching Grant from the Massachusetts Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission to clean the Civil War Headstones within Middleborough. There are over 400 headstones throughout town. We are into Year 2, and halfway through this initiative. Most stones are made of White Marble, which is a material that has become covered with mold. Some are granite, which can become covered with both mold and lichen.
We are looking for Volunteers to document the current conditions of the stones as well as clean the stones. We will train volunteers at no cost to you.
