Cemetery Preservation & Clean Up

Friday, July 27, 2018

Join the Maple Ridge Museum in a unique and rewarding project, preserving headstones at the Maple Ridge cemetery. The cemetery was established in 1878 on land donated by two pioneers- George Howison and William Nelson. The cemetery’s heritage value lies in its association with the prominent early European settlers of the City of Maple Ridge, both as its developers and as their final resting place. Many of the older headstones no longer have individuals to care for them; therefore you can help to preserve these reminders of our community’s roots. This event is for people who are passionate about history, volunteering, and community restoration. Many of the older headstones no longer have individuals to care for them. Spend the morning in the park cleaning headstones and clearing grass to preserve the precious history in Maple Ridge Cemetery. If you would like to volunteer, please signup via the web link or contact the Maple Ridge Museum.
