A 2013 application for funding through the Community Preservation Act was granted for $20,600 for the restoration and preservation of ancient burial markers in the Longmeadow Cemetery.  This work was conducted by Monument Conservation Collaborative, LLC of Norfolk, CT under the direction of Irving Slavid. Below are some slides showing the work that was completed during the summer of 2013. The full report is available online.

The Longmeadow Cemetery Association is grateful to the residents of the Town of Longmeadow who, through their support of the Community Preservation Act, have made this project possible.
