Program Announcement: Cemetery Walk - Cemetery Symbolism

Cemetery Symbolism is back by popular demand! Join Museum Administrator Maggie Marconi on Wednesday, September 15; Thursday, September 16, or Saturday, September 18, at 10:00 a.m. and take a closer look at one of Sandusky’s historic burying grounds, Oakland Cemetery. As we wind our way through the peaceful grounds, we will learn about 19th Century mourning practices and the rural cemetery movement, as well as examine examples of grave marker symbols and their meanings.

As this is a walking tour, please wear appropriate shoes and outerwear and be prepared to stand or walk for at least an hour. Registration is required. To register, call 419-625-3834 and press 0 to speak with a switchboard operator (10-5, Monday-Friday) or press Option 6 to leave a message.
