Our April Meeting

The Jackson County Historical Association and the Alabama Cemetery Preservation Alliance are co-sponsoring the annual meeting of the Alliance at the Scottsboro Jackson Heritage Center on Saturday, April 27.

The morning meeting will be at the heritage center, and the afternoon meeting will be a series of practicum workshops on headstone leveling and repair, with demonstrations of ground-penetrating radar and D2 cleaning held at Cedar Hill.

We will also hold a mini cemetery stroll about 3:00 with five presenters from our past strolls recreating their monologues for our out-of-town visitors. Cost of the workshop is $40 and includes a year’s membership in the Alabama Cemetery Preservation Alliance.
