Potter County Veterans Gravestone Restoration Project
Thank you for your interest in the Potter County Veterans Gravestone Restoration Project.
Hundreds of military veterans, some of them dating back to the Revolutionary War, are buried in cemeteries scattered across Potter County beneath grave markers that are illegible and scarred by inattention. That's starting to change as our project rolls out across the county. Ours is the nation's first county-operated project to make amends!
Visit the FaceBook page, "Military Veterans of Potter County" for veterans' biographic profiles and related information.
The Potter County Veterans Gravestone Restoration Project would not be possible without Mr. Andrew Lumish, "The Good Cemeterian". Please click here to watch a short video clip of Mr. Lumish's work of interest and how his selflessness inspired the Potter County Veterans Service Committee to memorialize our veterans.
