The Town of Boone Historic Preservation Commission is currently working on a project to map Boone’s cemeteries. Cemeteries are important focal points in the lives of town residents and can be an important genealogical and archaeological resource with respect to the community’s history. The Town of Boone Historic Preservation Commission has been tasked by the Boone Town Council to map the cemeteries within the Town of Boone. We are seeking information in order to document the history of cemeteries within the Town and potentially identify the grave-sites of historically significant persons.
We would love to hear from you if you are aware of any local cemeteries or gravesites or have other information that may help with this project. Please visit the project website by using the website link or QR Code below. At the project website, viewers will find: (1) a list and map of cemeteries whose locations have already been mapped and (2) an online form that asks for details on any cemetery you wish to be included in the mapping project.
Not able to participate electronically? No worries, please call the Planning and Inspections Department at (828) 268-6960 and ask to speak to Jessica Mitchell, Long Range/Special Projects Planner.
