Cemetery Tour: The Gravedigger’s Tour

Cemetery Tour

The Gravedigger’s Tour

 

On Saturday, October 5, 2013 at 4:00 p.m., The Stockbridge Library’s Museum & Archives will present the October monthly cemetery tour: The Gravedigger’s Tour.

 

The Stockbridge cemetery has been an important part of town life since 1750. This tour explores the life, work, and relationships of gravediggers in the 1800s and early 1900s. They did more than dig graves, as we’ll discover. The tour ends with a surprise.

 

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 last of six monthly tours of the Stockbridge Cemetery, May through October. Each monthly tour has a different theme. All tours take place on Saturdays, from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m.  Tours will resume in May 2014; please continue to visit www.stockbridgelibrary.org for future dates.
