October 19 - Gravestone Girls 7P - 9P
Our adult oriented presentation is about New England cemetery art, history, and symbolism in a 90 minute PowerPoint format. The "virtual tour", called "Welcome to the Graveyard", takes us from colonial burial grounds, through the rural cemetery movement of the 19th and into the 21st century locations. It examines why we have cemeteries and gravestones, why they look like they do, and how styles and art have evolved over almost 400 years
