Join us for a special event on Saturday, August 18, 2018, that looks at the symbolic meanings of tombstones. The event will feature a walking tour of Historic Montgomery Cemetery that begins at 6:30 p.m. with stops that highlight some of the symbolic representations found on the cemetery’s gravestones. This walking tour will be followed by light refreshments inside the Cemetery’s gatehouse with a presentation from 7:15 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The presentation will be provided by historian Tammy Schane who will discuss many of the symbols found on tombstones throughout the region.
