PARTICIPATE HANDS ON HISTORY

The Howard Pieper Cemetery Preservation Project Day

Help recover memory and heritage through hands-on efforts that restore and preserve two burial grounds near the historic Rosehill community in northwest Harris County.

Settled by German immigrants beginning in the 1840s, Rosehill became a thriving center of commercial and farming activity. Two work days will help recover grave site information and transform headstones by removing decades of pollutants, while also documenting the stories of those buried. Both cemeteries continue to be used by the early settlers’ descendants, thus creating a record connecting these families to the past.
