The Restoration Team

 

Shortcut to our current restoration efforts.

 

A number of people over the years have attempted to protect and restore the Old Muscogee Cemetery.Individual efforts, however, canít be very effective.Back in the 1990s a gate was erected at the cemetery entrance and kept locked to prevent vandals from entering the cemetery at night.The vandals simply pulled the gate down and continued their efforts.Plus the cemetery is too large for one or two people to keep cleared and picked up.To resolve these problems and to try to gather information about the people buried in the cemetery before it is lost to posterity, this web site was established in June of 2003.

 

Here are the people currently volunteering to put in periodic effort to keep the cemetery up and to try, where possible, to restore it to some of its past glory.If you would like to join the effort, drop me a line by clicking here.I will put your name on the list below and notify you of dates and times of meetings and restoration efforts.We will be working over the summer months to get organized and hope to begin in earnest in the fall when itís not so hot.
