Chicora Foundation Cemetery Preservation Guide

Like other historic resources, cemeteries and graveyards face dramatic pressures - from development, abandonment, and decay, nature, vandalism, and ignorance.

Cemeteries, however, are very different from most historic resources since they involve a variety of functions - sacred, artistic, historical, and genealogical. The resources include human remains, sculptures and monuments, brick walls and walkways, and the landscape. All of these factors make cemeteries - and their preservation - very complex.
