Elkhart County
Indiana Pioneer Cemeteries Restoration Project
(INPCRP)


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 approach 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, my name is Rebecca Akens and I am the county coordinator for Elkhart and LaGrange Counties. If you have any questions about the project, please e-mail me. This page is under major construction, so please bear with me. I have a lot in mind for this project and of course, there are never enough hours in the day!
