Cemetery Symbols Workshop at Pioneer Woman Museum

Ponca City, Okla. — Explore the meaning behind historic gravestones on Tuesday, April 14, at the Pioneer Woman Museum. Gravestones and cemeteries are rich in a language of symbols, though many of those symbols can be difficult to interpret because of changes in meaning over time. By examining the grave markers one can learn more than just the person's name. This class will provide the skills necessary to investigate the past through tombstones. The class is free and will take place from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Registration is required. For more information or to register please contact the Pioneer Woman Museum staff at piown@okhistory.org or 580-765-6108.

The Pioneer Woman Museum, a division of the Oklahoma Historical Society, is located at 701 Monument Rd. in Ponca City.
