Director’s Blog: What can you do at the Historical Society this week?

October 24th, 2011 by Elaine Clements

After enjoying our Friday evening Cocktails from the Crypt program, visit the Society’s library to learn more about Andover’s historic cemeteries

Historic cemeteries have been described as “History written in stone.”  Cemeteries are a tangible link to the past and are a unique way to explore local history.  Explore these natural places to learn about who lived here and shaped the Andover we know today.  By studying the ages, names, symbols, and epigraphs in cemeteries, we can learn about our town’s cultural, religious, and historical background.
