Cleaning and Maintenance in Tallahassee’s Cemeteries

In his spare time, Andy Wright, longtime Tallahassee Historical Society member and past board member, has been working tirelessly to care for the headstones of some of the city’s forgotten residents. With elbow grease and cleaning processes that safely and effectively remove decades of grime and mildew, some of the city’s oldest headstones have been renewed in their beauty and readability.

The following are some before and after shots from Andy’s restoration projects.
