Are you interested in learning more about the old historic cemeteries in our town? Join us for a cemetery walk to learn about the art and symbolism of New England gravestones in our very own Chocksett Cemetery with the amazing and knowledgable Brenda Sullivan of Gravestone Girls. She'll demonstrate how to do a proper gravestone rubbing, and then you'll be able to do your very own gravestone rubbing that you'll take home with you!

Dress warmly (layer up! mask up!), wear comfortable shoes, and bring water. This event is entirely outside. In the event of rain the event will be rescheduled. All other supplies needed for the event will be provided for you.
