High Tech and History: Preserving Tuskaloosa’s Greenwood Cemetery
Becky Davenport and Skip Campbell Join us for a fascinating look at Greenwood Cemetery –one of the oldest cemeteries in Tuscaloosa. Many historically prominent people are buried at Greenwood -early Alabama politicians, War soldiers, black entrepreneurs, and Tuscaloosa’s founders.
Through an effort spearheaded by the Chief Tuskaloosa Chapter DAR and, in cooperation with the City of Tuscaloosa, the Tuscaloosa County Preservation Society, and the Alabama Cemetery Preservation Alliance, we will particularly look at the identification and preservation of these beautiful markers which reflect the history of Tuscaloosa. You will see what work is currently being done with modern resources to maintain and preserve them, reverse the damage by corrosion and vandalism, and efforts for future solutions.
