Restoration of Old Burial Hill, Marblehead, MA

Yesterday, I had the good fortune to observe extensive restoration work being carried out at the historic Old Burial Hill Cemetery, off Pond Street, in Marblehead.  Irving Slavid and Martin Johnson, partners in Monument Conservation Collaborative, LLC, (see link to their website in blog links, right) worked diligently and quickly, under a darkening sky to carefully carry out their work.  At the same time, they were gracious enough to answer many of my questions regarding the nature and origins of their historic preservation projects, during my brief 45 minutes of observation.  Many thanks to them, for this!
