Heritage Walk: The Gravediggers’ Tour

The Stockbridge Cemetery has been part of town life since 1750, and grave-digging has been a vital job since then.  On Sunday, October 1, 2017 at 2:00 p.m., come learn about the gravediggers: their lives, work and relationships, and how the job changed over time.  They did more than dig graves, as we’ll discover.  The tour ends with a surprise!  The walk will be led by Trustee Karen Marshall of the Stockbridge Library, Museum & Archives.

The walk gathers at the cemetery gate on Main Street (Route 102, Stockbridge), and takes an hour. Parking is available at the old Town Hall, across from the gate, or on the street.

This Heritage Walk is being offered in collaboration with the Upper Housatonic Valley National Heritage Area.
