Wayne County INPCRP
Wayne County, Indiana
Pioneer Cemeteries
Restoration Project


The  Indiana  Pioneer  Cemeteries  Restoration  Project  was  begun  in  October  1997  as an effort  to generate public awareness about the neglected pioneer cemeteries of Indiana.  The state of Indiana is home to thousands of abandoned or neglected pioneer cemeteries,  the oldest of which now approaches 200  years.   The goal of this project is to restore and preserve as many of these cemeteries as possible. This project was founded on the belief  that we owe our pioneer ancestors a better monument  than a forgotten grave amid bramble and thicket.   Hello, our names are Tim and Sabrina Benner and we are the INPCRP Coordinators for Wayne County.   If you have any questions or comments about the project,  please  e-mail us.
