Grave Detectives! will introduce families to some of Concord’s oldest history that is hiding in plain sight at Old Hill Burying Ground. This tour will introduce how to read gravestone iconography, how to use images to roughly date stones, and how the epitaphs convey information.
Grave Detectives! Stories in Stone is an interactive discovery tour for kids and adults exploring the art, history, and sometimes funny stories behind the stones.
A unique and memorable historical experience in beautiful downtown Concord!
