St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 Guidelines for Preservation & Restoration were developed for tomb owners, cemetery caretakers, non-profit organization volunteers and professional craftspeople, conservators, and preservation consultants who are interested in repair, maintenance and restoration of above ground tombs in this and other local cemeteries. It is hoped that these guidelines will promote new enthusiasm for the responsible care and maintenance of the many tombs in need at St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, and for other historic above ground cemeteries in the region. Also included is information on tomb materials and construction history and ideas for researching tombs.
