Gravestone Conservation

03 May

In my spare time, I am a cemetery conservator. These skills come in handy in my day job as well, since the museum I work for owns Tulsa’s oldest burying ground, the Perryman Cemetery.

Those who are interested can check out my website devoted to my gravestone work: Swart Monument Restoration.

Below: I am working to re-set the 1893 monument for Cynthia Ann Parrish, a citizen of the Cherokee Nation, in the Coker Cemetery near Nowata, Oklahoma.
