Cemetery Walk: Above and Below: The Cemetery and the Gravediggers

Cemetery-5On Saturday, October 3, 2015, at 4:00 p.m., volunteers from the Stockbridge Library’s Museum & Archives will present the final cemetery walk of the 2015 season, Above and Below: The Cemetery and the Gravediggers.

 

The Stockbridge cemetery has been a necessary and important part of town life since the founding of the town. Come learn about the lives, 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; something not usually available will be open for exploring.

 

The tour gathers at the cemetery gate on Main Street (Route 102), Stockbridge and lasts one hour. Parking is available at the old Town Hall, across from the gate. A $5.00 donation is requested.
