|Starting in 2017, HPNW shifted its focus to cemetery preservation. Since then, we have repaired over 500 headstones. We do stone restoration, such as leveling, resetting, cleaning, and
repair of grave markers. We also do marker inventory, mapping, and long-term planning for cemeteries.
The hands-on work, coupled with planning for the future, suits our ethos well.
We post work examples on our HPNW facebook page. It is the best place to see our current work displayed and described. We post around one example per week, so if you "like" us on facebook, you will see our work samples in your feed.
We also put on cemetery workshops sponsored by the Oregon Commission on Historic Cemeteries (OCHC). Here are some of our handouts for cemetery workshops:
So far, we have done work for the following cemeteries repairing over 500 grave markers:
