Enjoy this video of the overwhelming success of our first annual Tombstone Mysteries historic cemetery restoration project at Plano Old City Cemetery and L.A. Davis Cemetery. Held in May 2015, participants cleaned gravestones, planted flowers, recognized soldiers' burial sites, photographed tombstones' condition, and enjoyed a "mystery tour" of unique and intriguing cemetery residents and tombstone symbols.
This year's Tombstone Mysteries took place on May 17, 2017 at Plano Mutual Cemetery. Check back here for updates & information regarding future Tombstone Mysteries events.

Tombstone Mysteries 2015
Tombstone Mysteries 2016 was a phenomenal success with more than 300 participating! This event gave adults, teens, and children a hands-on opportunity to help preserve history. More than $6,000 worth of tombstone and grave marker cleaning was completed by volunteer participants. The History Mystery interactive quiz sent participants through the cemetery, bringing cemetery residents to life and asking questions about how history is being repeated today. Flower memorials for the buried military veterans honored those who have bravely served our country.
