REPAIR. REBUILD. RESTORE. HISTORY IN ACTION.
Relatives of the Swayze family and interested historians may come to visit the burying grounds to trace their roots and share ancestry findings. Visitors have come from all parts of the USA and Canada.
In addition to ongoing repair and maintenance of the site, our primary mission is to educate the public on the significance of the Swayze influence in the 1700 to 1800's in the rural town of Hope.
