MARIETTA —The Marietta History Center’s Tombstone Cleaning Workshops have been awarded an Honorable Mention for Education program of the year by the Georgia Association of Museums.  This year’s conference was in held in Thomasville, Georgia with over 100 attendees from across the state.

The Tombstone Cleaning Workshops were designed, implemented, and presented by Collections Manager, Christa McCay, with the hope to show others how to properly care for tombstones. The workshops were held in small groups with proper techniques and supplies shown to allow the participants to be hands on.  During the hands-on program the same methods that are utilized by the Department of Veterans Affairs and the National Parks Service are taught and used by those participating in the workshops.

The Georgia Association of Museums is a statewide organization dedicated to serving a diverse membership in a way that establishes a responsive network, provides a resource base, and promotes professionalism so that Georgia's museum community is strong, effective, and proactive.

The Marietta History Center will be offering more Tombstone Cleaning Workshops in the Spring.  For more information about the program or events please visit us at
