Cemetery Symbols: Carved in Stone

October 29, 1 p.m.3 p.m.

Event Navigation

Join the Oklahoma History Center to explore the meaning behind historic gravestones in a virtual program on Saturday, October 29, from 1 to 3 p.m. Gravestones and cemeteries are rich in a language of symbols. Symbols can be difficult to interpret because their meaning changes over time. By examining the grave markers, one can learn more than just the person’s name. This in-person class for ages 16 and up will provide the skills necessary to investigate the past through tombstones.

This program will take place in the Musser Learning Lab at the Oklahoma History Center. The cost is $5 for OHS members and $10 for nonmembers. Registration opens on September 17 and closes on October 20.
