SOLD OUT – Historic Cemetery Walking Tours with Liz Villard

October 29 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

The old cemeteries 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.

  • Friday, October 15: Old Westside Cemetery, Edgartown – meet at the entrance at the corner of Cooke Street and Pease Point Way.
  • Friday, October 22: Village Cemetery, Vineyard Haven – meet at the Franklin Street entrance.
  • Friday, October 29: Village Cemetery, West Tisbury – meet at the main entrance.

Preregistration is required and space is limited. MVM Members: $15 per tour; Non-Members $20 per tour. Register for all three and save $5.
