North Sea Burying Ground Walk with Julie Greene
Time & Location
About the Event
Halloween is almost upon us -- a time for celebrating, a time for a suspension of disbelief rooted in ancient customs, a time when it was once thought the veil separating the world of the living and the realm beyond was at its thinnest. What better time to visit a graveyard!
Of course graveyards are often valuable sources of historical information about the surrounding community. From its age and ethnic makeup to people’s day-to-day lives, all can be learned from gravestones, while headstones’ styles, inscriptions, and the symbols used offer clues to class, customs, and religion.
Please join Southampton Town Historian Julie Greene as she gives a historic tour of one of Southampton’s oldest cemeteries!
