Beyond the Gravestone

181 Redcliffe RD
Beech Island, SC 29842


Free with Park Passport Plus Have you ever strolled through a cemetery and looked at old gravestones? Many are decorated with designs, quotes, or engravings that had special meaning for the deceased or their loved ones. Take a walk with us through the Beech Island Cemetery where Governor Hammond and many of his descendants are buried. Learn about gravestone motifs and the movement to protect, preserve, and document cemetery history. Special instructions and alternatives to the traditional gravestone rubbings will be discussed so that you may capture interesting designs without damaging these fragile markers.
