Armenian Heritage Walk
Thousands of Boston area Armenians chose, and continue to choose, Mount Auburn Cemetery as their final resting place, from early merchants such as Simon Antranighian, the first Armenian to be buried here, to refugees from the Ottoman massacres and genocide, and their contemporary descendants. Stephen Pinkerton, Marc A. Mamigonian, and Ruth Thomasian will lead a walking tour exploring the history of the Armenian community centered in Watertown and Belmont through stories of area residents interred in Mount Auburn’s northwest quadrant. Limited enrollment, Preregistration Required.
