This “garden of graves,” as it was called in the 19th century, has continually evolved over the past 180 years due to changing ideas about burial and commemoration. Today we continue to create new landscapes within the Cemetery that suit the needs of our contemporary clients and fit within our historic landscape. Join Candace Currie and Jim Holman for a discussion on the intricacies of designing new garden spaces that must serve both aesthetic and practical Cemetery needs. *This event takes place in Story Chapel.
