Historic Cemetery Walking Tours with Liz Villard

October 27 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 2:30 pm on Thursday, repeating until October 27, 2022

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, Edgartown Cemetery Commissioner, to explore three of her favorite graveyards and let the stones speak for themselves on these historic and decidedly not-spooky walking tours.
