Just as the rich and famous were buried at Mount Auburn, so were the “not so rich and famous” -the butchers, bakers, candlestick makers – or in our case, the cigar makers, furriers, midwives, miners, fishermen, clothiers, hatters, and horse carriage conductors.  Join Volunteer Docents Carol Harper and Ginny Brady as we investigate the post-Industrial Revolution era and celebrate the lives of the immigrants and others who worked and raised families while building the economies of Boston and Cambridge.
