Historic Maplewood Cemetery Tours
October 10, 11, 19 & 18 @ 10am
Celebrate Durham history and Halloween with a guided tour of Durham’s famous Old Maplewood Cemetery. Preservation Durham tour guides will take small groups around the cemetery pausing here and there to tell stories of triumph and tragedy, joy and sorrow, wealth and poverty, lives long and short. We will talk about war, disease, and maybe even a murder mystery. Learn about funerary traditions and grave art and architecture. All this in what is perhaps Durham’s loveliest urban open space.
