    Clean gravestones for us – fresh air for them – a win win as I see it!

    Is that the Naughty gang?

    I am VERY disappointed in the town. I emailed them the day after the vandalism happened to offer my FREE services to fix the stones. I am a historic preservationist and I have extensive training in cemetary restoration. Since Barnstable is my home town I was devastated to see such destruction. I emailed the town asking to restore the stones for free. I never received an email back.
    As I agree it’s important for the inmates to do such community projects, however, the number one rule to stonework is to NEVER EVER use a pressure washer. The pressure will blast of stone, wear the engraving done, and become locked inside the stones pores. I hope no more damage than that occurred. Unfortunately, these stones will now erode at a faster rate more than ever. This is devastating.
