“Here Lies….” Historical Headstone Carving Demonstration at Walnford
Sunday, October 27, 2019 at 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 1:00 pm, repeating until Sunday, October 27, 2019
Weeping willow, angel, thoughtful sentiments or simply birth and death dates carefully carved in to a headstone carry a message from the past for all to remember. Watch skilled craftsman Tom Kelleher from Old Sturbridge Village as he carves a traditional slate headstone while sharing some early American social history on customs for passing from this life to the next. Add a side trip to one or more of the historic cemeteries in this area to view many early expressive headstones.
