Centuries-old gravestones to be restored in Fredericton’s Old Loyalist Burial Ground

The city of Fredericton is working with experts to carefully restore and preserve the gravestones that make up the Old Loyalist Burial Ground in the city’s centre.
Weather, vandalism and time have caused some of the stones to fall, crumble and sink into the ground, most of their engravings illegible.
