Deterioration from natural forces such as weathering and uncontrolled vegetation and insensitive development threaten our historic cemeteries.  The involvement of individuals and organizations with an interest and commitment to saving local history and culture is critical to protecting and preserving the state's historic cemeteries.  The Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation has compiled this information to aid local efforts.  DAHP does not have funds for maintenance of historic cemeteries or legal authority to acquire cemeteries or enforce laws protecting cemeteries.
