Visitors from the Past: Village Cemetery Tour

August 17 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Visitors from the Past

Take a journey through local history and meet ten visitors from the past in the Village Cemetery. Costumed actors will tell the stories of their lives at their final resting places in this historic graveyard on Concord Street. The visitors from the past include millworkers and mill owners, a Civil War soldier, a hero of the Revolution, a young wife lost in a tragic shipwreck, and the daughter of an enslaved woman.

To best enjoy the tour, guests must be able to stand for an hour or more and to navigate uneven terrain. Parking is at Reynolds Hall, All Saints’ Church (a short walk from the cemetery). Guests may be dropped off at the cemetery but parking is not allowed.

Visitors from the Past tours are held in groups of ten people and begin at 10 a.m. Group entry is at 5 minute intervals. Participants select an entry time when purchasing their tickets.

Tickets are $15 ($12 for Monadnock Center members) and must be purchased in advance.
