MARIETTA - The Marietta Museum of History is excited to announce a new hands-on program to be held at the Marietta City Cemetery.  Established in the early 1830s, the Marietta City Cemetery is the final resting place of many of Marietta and Cobb County citizens.  The tombstones in the cemetery are artifacts and are often the only record of the person’s life, but many of these need to be cleaned.  These hands-on workshops will help, teach others the proper tools, products, and techniques to use to clean a tombstone, while doing no harm to the stone or the landscape. 

The workshops will be offered on 3 consecutive Saturdays in May from 10am to noon.  Tickets are $25 per person and each workshop is limited to 10 people.  Along with the hands-on workshop, attendees will also get a tour and history of the cemetery.  

When: Saturday, May 8th, 15th and 22nd from 10am to noon, weather permitting.  If needed a rain date will be the Sunday following. (9th, 16th and 23rd from 10am to noon)

Where: Marietta City Cemetery, 420 West Atlanta St. Marietta, GA 30064

Cost: $25 per person, limit 10 people per workshop

Tickets can be purchased through the Museum’s online store, which can be found on our website www.MariettaHistory.org.  You can also find the link on our Facebook page.
