Volunteers at last year’s OCBG day.

Come help preserve Granville's most beautiful historic site! Volunteer morning in the Old Colony Burying Ground (South Main Street) is scheduled for Saturday, June 8, 9:00 a.m. Meet at the shed near the car wash.

Jobs for volunteers include cleaning historic headstones (we'll show you how if you're new to the project), straightening tilted headstones, and excavating fallen stones for repair. Every volunteer is needed and anyone can make a valuable contribution to the preservation of our historic heritage. We'll provide the tools, brushes, work gloves, sunscreen, refreshments (including coffee and yummy breakfast pastries) and camaraderie!

Questions? Call project coordinator Lyn Boone at 740-587-4728. We greatly appreciate everyone's help!
