Mount Hope Cemetery in Webb City, MO
Hands-on workshop is offered at 10:00 am June 18, 2022. Guests will learn the basics of headstone restoration, maintenance, and safe cleaning practices. Bring your own soft brush, and bucket and we will supply the rest. (example, a brush soft enough to wash a car)
Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at Mount Hope tour Headquarters on tour day.
Instructors will give a short class on safe cleaning methods. Then you will get to clean a selected tombstone to get hands on experience.
Mount Hope Cemetery is located in Webb City at 3700 North Range Line Road (east of Range Line—also known as South Madison Avenue and US 71 Highway—and East Mt. Hope Road).
Due to the design of the historic properties handicap accessibility is limited. Please wear comfortable shoes and a hat.
Proceeds are used for education, awareness and preservation endeavors.
