Pine Grove Cemetery
October 13, 2013
2:30 – 4:00 p.m
Did you know that the same landscape architect who designed Mt. Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge also designed Pine Grove Cemetery? Join us this Saturday for an autumn walking tour of this beautiful landscape during the peak of the fall foliage. Learn about the cemetery’s history and Lynn’s too. We’ll cover Revolutionary War heroes, The Civil War soldiers, all the war memorials, the Lynn Abolitionists, the Lynn Beach Painters, the shoe barons, industrialists, politicians and sports stars of the past.
Meet at the Cemetery Office at the Boston Street entrance to the cemetery, across from the Big Lots shopping plaza. Wear good walking shoes as we will climb hills and cover a lot of ground. Rain cancels.
The tour is offered by members of the Pine Grove National Register Committee working to get Pine Grove Cemetery onto the National Register of Historic Places. Email JuliaGreene150@yahoo.com for more information about this project.
