Cape Cod Cemeteries - TONIGHT!
Wednesday, October 29 at 7:00 pm
Nancy Shoemaker joins us for a pre-Halloween treat.
Come discover peaceful places that have no admission fee - for the living
anyway! Nancy will lead our audience on a virtual (slideshow) tour
of Cape Cod's final resting places from Truro to
Falmouth - and our audience won't leave the comfort of Dennis Public Library.
You'll learn a lot of history, with a little humor thrown in for fun. Get a
view of various stone carvers' works and discover how to date a cemetery by its
stones. Headstones on the Cape span the
centuries, with a few dating, amazingly, from the 1600s. You’ll enjoy
contemplating these unique works of art.
