Field Trips: Atlas Obscura's Upcoming Cemetery Tours

Posted by 16ec9eca tiny Jen on feb 12, 2013 under Event

We love Atlas Obscura, and these upcoming cemetery tours, given by Allison Meier, look absolutely great:

March 10: Exploring the Glamorous Afterlife in Woodlawn Cemetery http://www.atlasobscura.com/events/glamorous-afterlife

April 28: An Afternoon in the New York Marble Cemetery http://www.atlasobscura.com/events/obscura-society-nyc-an-afternoon-at-the-new-york-marble-cemetery

In March, we'll be hosting a class on cemetery symbolism with Allison at the Brainey, and taking a tour would make for an awesome pairing. 

If you want to read up on some NYC cemetery history ahead of time, check out this series Allison put together for us:

Part 1: Forgotten NYC Cemeteries

Part 2: NYC's Early Cemeteries 

Part 3: City Cemeteries, Working Class Cemeteries, and Rural Cemeteries
