Concord Tour Company presents: Grave Addiction — An evening walking tour through historic Concord’s graveyards

October 9 @ 5:15 pm - 6:30 pm

- $30

You’ll love this atmospheric walk through two of Concord’s oldest cemeteries as we explore everything about our graves from burial customs to iconography, plus a goodly share of Concord-centered tales, including: what Henry Thoreau though of ghosts; a first person description of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s gruesome encounter with a drowned woman; and the mysterious case of the soldier whose head went missing. A sometimes humorous and sometimes chilling look at the stories behind the stones.

— Tours depart from the benches located in front of Concord’s Colonial Inn
— Tour route: about one mile total on a combination of rough, uneven ground and some paved sidewalks in low light.
— Appropriate footwear strongly recommended (no flip flops or heels). Old Hill Burial Ground is not wheelchair accessible.
