Indiana Pioneer Cemetery
Welcome to the Tippecanoe County, Indiana page for cemetery restoration.
I am L. A.Clugh, coordinator for the Tippecanoe County INPCRP. If you have any questions or comments about any of our projects, please contact me. As the County coordinator, I am available to offer guidance and training to volunteers who would like to adopt a cemetery in Tippecanoe County as their project, and to help educate any citizen, trustee or cemetery association in our county about restoration.
The Tippecanoe County Area Plan Commission has documented 134 cemeteries and has published a book which gives information on each of these cemeteries, including the date of origin, location, condition, caretaker, etc. This book and a map is available for purchase at their office.
Listed below are links to several sites which have information on tombstone cleaning, repair supplies, books and general restoration. Most of our restoration projects are also linked below for you to view.
Lou Ann Clugh , aka L.A. email me if you have questions

Greenbush & the Old Lafayette City Cemetery
Your group can help at Greenbush. Every week the limbs come down. By just walking a section of the cemetery, picking up the fallen debris and placing them along the drives will help. The trees are over 150 years old.
Thanks you John Walters for your
dedication, & thanks and
