Peterborough’s Village Cemetery Walking Tour

October 7 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Join Monadnock Center director Michelle Stahl for a guided tour of Peterborough’s second-oldest graveyard. Established in the early 1830s when the town’s civic and commercial center had shifted to the river valley, the Village Cemetery documents the lives of the community’s 19th century business and social leaders as well as some of its Civil War veterans. The walk will include information about 19th century funeral customs and the Victorian fascination with death and mourning.Village Cemetery school web

Wear walking shoes and be prepared for uneven terrain. The tour will be held rain or shine. 

The cemetery is on the east side of Concord Street, just north of All Saints Episcopal Church. Park along the road or turn into the cemetery and park at the rear.
