Indiana Pioneer Cemetery
Welcome to the Tippecanoe County, Indiana page for cemetery restoration.
I am L. A.Clugh, coordinator for the Tippecanoe County INPCRP. If you have any questions or comments about any of our projects, please contact me. As coordinator, I am available to offer guidance and training to volunteers who would like to adopt a cemetery in Tippecanoe County as their project, and to help educate any citizen, trustee or cemetery association in our county about restoration. Educational workshops are held usually twice a year throughout our state sponsored by the Indiana Historical Society & The DHPA. You will find more on these below.

The Tippecanoe County Area Plan Commission has documented 134 cemeteries and has published a book which gives information on each of these cemeteries, including the date of origin, location, condition, caretaker, etc. This book and a map is available for purchase at their office.
Listed below are links to several sites which have information on tombstone cleaning, repair supplies, books and general restoration. Most of our restoration projects are also linked below for you to view. There are many pictures on these pages showing our progress so the pages may load slowly - please be patient, they are worth the wait!
TCCRG volunteers will be working on cemetery projects throughout the year. If you are interested in helping us in any way, please contact me. We would love to have your help! Take a look at our State INPCRP page.
