Sara Ayers-Rigsby l Historic Key West Cemetery and Preservation


About the presentation:

Are you a passionate taphophile dedicated to the preservation of historical cemeteries?

Come learn how to protect these living museums with the Florida Public Archaeology Network on Thursday evening, then for a historical tour with Historic Florida Keys Foundation on Saturday morning (must register for Saturday tour).  If you are interested in putting your newfound knowledge to the test, we’ll spend the rest of Saturday morning assisting with a cemetery clean-up.
