A Grave Affair – Historic Graveyard Walk Oct. 20

What mysteries lurk in the old graveyard?  What messages are hidden in its ancient tombstones? What stories could its denizens tell, if they could talk?

Find out, Saturday October 20th at 4 P.M., with a walking tour of the River View Cemetery hosted by the Essex Historical Society and the Essex Library. The walk will begin at the Essex Library, and families with children older than four are welcome to leave them for the duration of the tour at the Library, where we’ll show the holiday favorite, “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!”

Get a view of our old town’s history through the stories of its early residents, as revealed by their final resting places. It’s spooky good fun for adults, and a not-too-spooky good time at the Library for the little ones.

This program is free and open to all, but registration is requested. Please call the Essex Library at 860-767-1560. The Library is at 33 West Avenue. The Essex Library is an equal opportunity provider and employer.
