Welcome to the Graveyard

“Welcome to the Graveyard!” by the Gravestone Girls.

A 90 minute illustrated ‘virtual tour’ chronicling cemetery art, history and symbolism through the lens of Northfield cemeteries. From colonial New England burial grounds of the 16 & 1700s, through the nation-wide rural cemetery movement of the 19th century and into 21st century locations, the program 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 presentation will be filled with images from gravestones here in Northfield as visual examples.
