North End Burying Ground Walking Tour with Julie B. Greene

North End Cemetery, Southampton, NY 11968, USA

About the Event

Within each community, cemeteries are among the most fascinating, richest, and often the most valuable sources of historical information. The age of the community, its ethnic composition, as well as specific genealogical information can be determined by "reading" gravestones. The style of headstones and the symbols and inscriptions found on them reflect religious beliefs, social class and values, as well as cultural change over time.

From simple unmarked stones to elaborate obelisks, carved slates and brownstones, to marble and granite all are representative of a period of time in the settlement of Southampton Town, each a record of those who came before.

Recognizing that these burying grounds’ stones are historic records, the Town of Southampton protects eleven cemeteries throughout the town, maintaining the sites and preserving the vital historic records within.

As we celebrate Genealogy Day, please join us for a socially distanced, masked walking tour of the North End Burying Ground with Julie B. Greene, Southampton Town Historian.

PARKING INFORMATION

The best parking option would be in the Stop n Shop parking lot just South of the cemetery.
