This weekend, I had the great joy and honor of working with the Lincoln Cemetery Association during one our of Cemetery Resource Protection Training (CRPT) workshops. Lincoln Cemetery was established in 1888 to serve the African-American community in Orange City and the surrounding area. The cemetery is still used today and contains beautiful vernacular (homemade) headstones, formal granite markers and lots of in-ground vaults.

Special thanks to Kim Reading for all of her support and guidance in the community, as well as to Walter Welch for his hard work cleaning and caring for cemeteries throughout Volusia County.
