Cemetery Tour: Smart from the Start: 275 years of Education in Stockbridge

Smart from the Start: 275 years of Education in Stockbridge

 

On Saturday, September 14, 2013, at 4:00 p.m., The Stockbridge Library’s Museum & Archives will present its monthly tour of the Stockbridge Cemetery: Smart from the Start: 275 Years of Education in Stockbridge.

 

The town was founded for education; Stockbridge’s first colonial settlers came when John Sergeant established an Indian mission school in 1739. The small town has been home to a surprisingly large number of schools and teachers since that time. From public to private, Stockbridge had them all, and often at the same time. The tour will explore who made the learning happen, and what was being taught, to whom.

 

The tour gathers at the cemetery gate on Main Street (Rt. 102), Stockbridge. Parking is available at the old Town Hall, across from the gate. A donation of $5.00 is suggested.

 

This is the fifth of six monthly tours of the Stockbridge Cemetery, May through October. Each monthly tour has a different theme. All tours take place from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. on Saturdays.
