The photos were taken at a meeting of the Historic
St. Peter's Church Preservation Corporation when the Lewis and
Clark specimen garden was introduced. The garden, in the graveyard,
will be open all summer for visitors. (See hours in the story
on Summer of exhibits.)
HSPCPC was meeting to hear conservation expert John Carr discuss
results of his survey of more than 1,000 gravestones and the cost
of a plan for its ongoing project to repair the stones and monuments
and maintain the historic cemetery. Its mission is to assist the
church and the neighborhood by taking on the task. HSPCPC seeks
new memberships and contributions to the project.
