We take a lot of pride in sharing our before and after photos. When we first arrive to a cemetery, it often time seems overwhelming. However, with the team of volunteers we have, we make quick work and easily Rediscover History in our local towns. The top gallery features current, completed and ongoing projects. The bottom gallery features many photos from the cemeteries we have visited .

Lathrop Cemetery, Salem CT - BEFORE This location was completely lost to time, You may not have even known it was there except for the tiny sign telling you it was. The first crew and land owners went in and removed the tons of trees. Then they were ready for us to get in there and do the rest.
