Historic Cemetery Walking Tour: West Tisbury

Historic Cemetery Walking Tour

The old burying grounds of Martha’s Vineyard are full of beautiful and unique gravestones commemorating Islanders of the past. What’s the significance of the urn or the rising sun? Why are some stones legible and others not? And what about those strange poems? Join special guest tour guide Liz Villard to explore her favorite graveyards and let the stones speak for themselves on these historic and decidedly not-spooky walking tours.

October 18th’s tour will take place at Village Cemetery in West Tisbury. Attendees should meet at the main entrance.
