“Cemetery Symbols: Carved in Stone” program
Saturday, October 31, 1 to 3 p.m.
Join us as we explore the meaning behind historic gravestones. 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 class will provide the skills necessary to investigate the past through tombstones. The cost is $5 for OHS members and $10 for nonmembers. Registration opens on September 19 and closes on October 15.
