Gravestone Girls virtual tour of Upton

Gravestone Girls
A Virtual Tour of Upton’s Local Cemeteries

Monday, May 21  6:30pm – 8pm at Upton Senior Center
Call Upton Library at 508-529-6272

Lakeview Cemetery, Upton MA

The ‘virtual tour’, called “Welcome to The Graveyard”, takes us from colonial burial grounds, through the rural cemetery movement of the 19th century and into 21st century locations.  It examines why we have cemeteries and gravestones, why they look like they do and how styles and art have evolved over almost 400 years.  The Girls will hit the road and go through Upton’s cemeteries, taking pictures for use in building the presentation and using as much local content as possible. 
We bring along informational handouts for takeaway plus examples of our gravestone artwork so the audience can have a hands-on experience, plus purchasing opportunities.  Q&A is welcome at the end of the show!
