The Pioneer Cemetery Preservation Committee is a group of volunteers dedicated to the preservation of Delaware County’s abandoned, lost, and forgotten cemeteries in which many of our pioneer families lie buried.

We are non-funded, working solely from donations. We are happy to teach anyone who is interested in the best ways of cleaning and repairing the beautiful old markers of our pioneer forefathers.

The Cemetery Committee conducts a business meeting on the Third Thursday of each month at 6:30 pm at the historical society. The committee also schedules workdays on most Saturday mornings. Anyone interested in learning more about the committee may email to for more information.
