One of the Townsend Historical Society’s most popular events is just a couple of weekends away! Historian Lee McTighe’s Cemetery Tours have become a much-anticipated fall tradition, and we can’t wait for this year’s exploration of the “New Burying Ground” section of Hillside Cemetery!
Join Lee on Saturday, October 23rd at 2:00 P.M. as we visit the resting places of some most unusual former Townsend residents, as well as others who were prominent citizens, philanthropists, and benefactors. Fall is a beautiful time to visit this lovely part of the cemetery, which includes the only hillside. Rain date – Sunday, October 24th. To provide us with stamina for the walking tour, THS will supply plenty of cider doughnuts and hot apple cider!
