Cemetery Tour Tomorrow

by @ 11:19 am. Filed under History

Tomorrow (Saturday, May 9) at 10 am, Catherine Goodwin, the author of Mourning Glory: The Story of the Lowell Cemetery will give a free guided tour of one of the Lowell Cemetery, one of the city’s most picturesque places. The tour will begin at the cemeteries Lawrence Street gate. The Lowell Cemetery was incorporated in 1841 and was inspired by Cambridge’s Mt Auburn Cemetery, the first garden-style cemetery in the United States. Overlooking the Concord River, the Lowell Cemetery features many acres of rolling hills and tree lined avenues and an amazing collection of Victorian-era grave markers, more commonly called “cemetery art.”

Like the land records we maintain here at the registry of deeds, our local cemeteries allow people of today to connect with those who have come before us. Given the number of people who contact me about obtaining copies of deeds to homes owned by long-deceased ancestors, the desire to learn more about the family’s past is as strong as ever.
