In an effort to promote cemetery awareness, the Texarkana Museums System is offering a cemetery maintenance workshop will allow interested parties to learn how to properly care for and clean their family markers. This hands-on workshop for beginners emphasizes safe methods of cleaning and maintaining historic headstones.
“Individuals with good intentions can sometimes do more damage than good with not knowing the proper way to care for headstones.”
The State Line Cemetery is located at the corner of East 34th and State Line Avenue in historic downtown Texarkana, USA. A sack lunch will be provided by Subway and Manju Pokhrel. This workshop is generously sponsored by Texarkana Funeral Home.
