Lantern Tour of the Plymouth Burying Ground
|Date:||October 10, 2015|
|Time:||7:00 PM - 8:00 PM|
Location: Plymouth Green, 10 Park St.
Every year this tour sells out so reserve early! The tour begins in the Congregational Church where organist Marilyn Mattoon plays “spooky” music of the season on the powerful pipe organ. From there, we wend our way through the Plymouth Burying Ground and discover how the symbols and inscriptions on the gravestones provide clues to life in colonial Connecticut.
The walk also includes historic buildings, such as the 1838 Greek Revival Congregational Church with its original wooden clockworks built by Eli Terry, a house that was on the Underground Railroad, and a home where George Washington stayed during the Revolutionary War.
The cost is $10 for adults, under 18 free. Part of the proceeds benefit the church’s organ restoration fund. All participants receive a full color guide to the village of Plymouth Center and complimentary refreshments at “Antiques at the Green”. Meet at 7pm in front of the Congregational Church, 10 Park St., Plymouth. Call 860-921-6118 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your place!
