To document each burial site and cemetery, to maintain this information for public use, and to file all documentation with city and county officials To organizae the maintenance and preservation of our county cemeteries by working with local governments, landowners, and descendants of those buried in county cemeteries. To educate about the Arkansas state cemetery laws and preservation guidelines.
Many of Washington County's historic cemeteries were once located in the midst of thriving communities, but have become neglected, overgrown, and forgotten over time. Growth and development now place many of these cemeteries in danger of being destroyed and lost forever.
The Washington County Cemetery Preservation Group is partnering with service organizations, church groups, and individual volunteers to provide a long-term plan for maintenance and preservation of our county's historic cemeteries.
WE NEED YOU! We have many, many areas of our organization in which we need volunteers to help us carry out our mission. Not only do we need volunteers to help clean, repair, and maintain our county cemeteries. We also need help doing certain office duties, such as research and correspondence. If you can help out just one or two hours per week, that would be wonderful!
