Illinois Historic Preservation Handbooks

There are many manuals available to the public that explain the different techniques used in cemetery preservation. The Illinois Historic Preservation Agency follows a conservative approach to cemetery preservation and presents methods and products that are approved by the National Park Service. We want to help you to preserve cemeteries for future generations. It’s not just our history, it’s everyone’s history.
