Brad Manzenberger, owner of Stone Revival Cemetery Restoration of Franklin, Indiana, has been doing cemetery restoration since 2004. He became interested in cemetery restoration through is genealogy research. After visiting the graves of his ancestors only to find many of the markers on the ground and broken he decided to learn how to care for his family headstones. What started out as a personal hobby grew into a full time business.


Brad has attended several restoration workshops sponsored by the Indiana Historical Society and Indiana Department of Natural Resources. He has also attended a National Center for for Preservation Technology and Training workshop.
