Chalmette National Cemetery

Bayou Preservation worked with the National Park Service and the National Trust for Historic Preservation on resetting headstones at the Chalmette National Cemetery for their annual HOPE (Hands On Preservation Experience) project. We taught over 50 volunteers how to safely and correctly reset headstones, and the importance of proper cemetery preservation.
