A Jasper High School art teacher is working on engravings from old headstones to preserve some of the county's history.
Since April Josh Dodd of the Jasper Stone Carver Group has spent much of his time in a small corner of the Dubois County Museum.
He says he started a year ago when he was approached by a couple of county officials.
"It was Matt Hilger and Stan Yochum," said Josh. "They were both kind of walking through the cemeteries and they realized that several of the stones had faded away to the point where you couldn't even read the markers anymore."
Josh says the Dubois County Community Foundation commissioned a trip that took him to Pfaffenweiler, Germany which is Jasper's sister city.
