Prioleau Cemetery, Naval Weapons Station, North Charleston, South Carolina, Conservation Report

Year: 2008


In August 2006, The Office of Natural and Cultural Resources of the Charleston Naval Weapons Station contacted Kreilick Conservation, LLC to conduct a conditions assessment of the Prioleau Cemetery at the Naval Weapons Station in North Charleston, SC. Scott Kreilick completed the assessment on July 19, 2007. GEL Geophysics, LLC retained the company on October 9, 2007 to complete conservation treatment of the four markers (ledgers and brick bases) and structural assessment and conservation specifications of the brick wall encompassing the markers. This report addresses the conservation treatment of the markers. The structural assessment and specifications of the brick wall will be under a separate cover.

Conservation philosophy for the project was based on a combination of client expectation and Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties, as well as Guidelines for Practice of the American Institute for Conservation (AIC). This report includes a description of all treatments implemented to conserve the four markers in Prioleau Cemetery, thorough photo documentation of all project phases, and recommendations for future maintenance.
