Adopt-A-Plot Overview

The Cemetery Restoration Committee of Patchogue (CRC) is initiating an innovative concept in cemetery restoration, beautification, and preservation.

The CRC Adopt-A-Plot program offers individuals, groups, organizations and companies the opportunity to play a vital role preserving a historic Patchogue landmark.


About the CRC
The CRC is a group of independent volunteers formally organized on May 22, 2006 to restore five historic and sacred cemeteries located within the Village of Patchogue. This restoration project is undertaken in conjunction with the Incorporated Village of Patchogue and the Greater Patchogue Foundation, Inc.

This restoration project includes the following cemeteries, all of which are located on the corner of West Main Street and Waverly Avenue in the historic Village of Patchogue:
  Lake View Cemetery
Rice Cemetery
Union Cemetery
  Gerard Cemetery
Old Episcopal Cemetery
The concept is simply people getting involved in efforts to revitalize a community resource, restore its past dignity and beauty, and preserve it for generations yet to come. By adopting a Patchogue pioneer family's plot and caring for it, you become an integral part of the CRC's restoration and preservation program. A few hours of your time each month and a little landscaping imagination can make up for the years of neglect that frequently plagues old cemeteries.

The CRC Adopt-A-Plot program can be more than taking care of a piece of ground. The CRC encourages participants in the program to research their "adopted" family's history which, in itself, can be a truly rewarding experience. And by contributing your research to the CRC's archives of genealogical information, you also help to preserve history. You can play an important role in beautifying and preserving Patchogue history.
The CRC Adopt-A-Plot program involves a commitment of time. Those who are interested should carefully weigh that commitment before undertaking their project. The duration of the adopter's involvement in this program shall be contingent upon that period of time agreed to in the contract and their continuing desire to participate. The minimum participation requirement in the program is two years. Other arrangements, however, may be made with the CRC.
