Cemetery Restoration

Headstone Restoration & Preservation

We work in partnership with Texas Cemetery Restoration to help local cemeteries like Young, Collinsworth, Old City, and Davis restore and preserve their aging headstones & markers.

Wayside Signs

In addition to cemetery restoration we also research, write, and install educational wayside signs for historic locations like cemeteries, trails, and other significant sites.

Historic Cemetery Tourism

We strive to make Plano's historic cemeteries appealing and accessible to both locals and tourists. We hold annual events that show visitors many of Plano's hidden historical assets and cultivate a more informed population.
