    UNDERSTANDING NEW ENGLAND: GRAVESTONES AND THE STORIES THEY TELL

    Sunday, October 26, 2014                                                                                                                   2:00 pm
    Grout Heard House Museum

    New Englandís burying grounds are often called outdoor museumsófull of history, art, and much more! We
    are delighted to have Laurel K. Gabel, one of the most distinguished New Englanders in the Gravestone field,
    author, lecturer, and much recognized, to introduce us to gravestones, their symbolism and special languages
    One or two of the gravestones in Waylandís North Cemetery will be included in the presentation, as well as
    many of the features found on the gravestones there. Laurelís goal is to see that you can walk through North
    Cemetery after her session, and recognize many of the features. If the weather cooperates, maybe you can
    do it today!
