Virtual Event: Gravestone Girls with Mount Auburn Cemetery and the Nichols House Museum
Mount Auburn Cemetery and Nichols after Dark present a historic cemetery tour with the Gravestone Girls.
Join us for a virtual evening program with the Gravestone Girls, Nichols House Museum, and the Friends of Mount Auburn Cemetery. The lecture will center around New England cemetery art, history, and symbolism. The Gravestone Girls’ “virtual tour” will discuss the evolution of cemeteries beginning with colonial burial grounds and ending with 21st-century practices. Special attention will be given to the rural cemetery movement of the 19th century as represented by Mount Auburn Cemetery, as well as the Nichols family plots at MAC.
Attendees will be provided with a link to access the program the week of the event.
The Friends of Mount Auburn Cemetery is a non-profit educational trust established to promote the appreciation and preservation of Mount Auburn’s cultural, historic, and natural resources. The Friends offers walks, talks, concerts, and special events throughout the year to share the stories of history, horticulture, wildlife, art, and the lives of those buried at the Cemetery with the public. We invite you to join us for an upcoming event to learn more about this important urban oasis and National Historic Landmark.
Nichols after Dark is a recurring afterhours programming series offered by the Nichols House Museum.
