Welcome to the Graveyard! The Gravestone Girls present a talk on New England cemetery art, history and symbolism.

The Gravestone Girls will present a haunting 90 minute illustrated ‘slide tour’ chronicling cemetery art, history and symbolism.  From the colonial New England burial grounds of the 1600s and 1700s, through the nation-wide rural cemetery movement of the 19th century and into 21st century locations, the program examines why we have cemeteries and gravestones, why they look like they do and how styles and art have evolved over almost 400 years. The Girls will hit the road and go through the cemeteries in Plymouth, taking pictures for the presentation with as much local content as possible.
