Historian Lee McTighe’s Virtual Tour of the Old Burying Ground, October 24th!

Last October, for local historian Lee McTighe’s tour of Riverside Cemetery, we welcomed dozens of guests (as well as dozens of cider doughnuts!) We’re fortunate to be working with Lee once again this fall for a brand new historical tour of Townsend’s Old Burying Ground!

On October 24th at 2:00 P.M., we’re all invited to join for a fascinating virtual presentation. Lee will be exploring the history of Townsend’s earliest cemetery, dating back to the first half of the 18th century, and discussing the remarkable lives (and deaths for that matter) of those early residents of our town.

In 2021, we’re hoping to return to our in-person version of Lee’s cemetery tours, but this year we’ll all be able to view Lee’s online presentation in the cozy comfort of our own homes using the easy-to-use program “Zoom”. Last year’s event was the perfect fall outing, so perhaps this year’s might be described as the perfect fall “inning”? The program is totally free, and is also BYOD (bring your own doughnuts!)

If you’re interested in taking part, please email the Historical Society at townsendhistoricalsociety@yahoo.com or give us a call at (978) 597-2106 to let us know an email address where we’ll be able to send your invitation to the Zoom event. It’s sure to be just the right combination of historical education, fun, and a little bit of spookiness for the Halloween season, we hope you’ll join us for Lee’s presentation!

And if you’re on the lookout for more exciting fall events, on October 10th the Historical Society will be hosting “Virtually Vintage: A Live, Online Antique Appraisal Event”.
