Projects Completed

Projects which have taken place since 2014:

  • For historical purposes, the photographing of every tombstone and marker in the Cemetery.
  • The purchase of a software program specifically designed to manage the Cemetery’s data, consolidating 130 years of record keeping.
  • Research of Veterans buried in our Cemetery, which increased the total count from 80 to 190. On Memorial Day weekend each year, crosses and flags are placed on those graves, with the help of the VFW and community members.

  • The creation of the Cemetery’s own website: QuilceneCemetery.org

  • A professional restoration of 40 of the oldest and most fragile tombstones which were tilted or unstable.
