Join us for a special edition of our parlor chat series in October. In conjunction with our Archeology Month event, Gravestone Symbols and their Meanings in Evergreen, we are hosting a special parlor chat to discuss the meanings of different gravestone symbols.

Gravestones are very personal and used to represent the people they honor. In the past, different symbols and carvings on gravestones held certain meanings and told the viewer something about the deceased.

Come learn about what some of these symbols meant, which you can later use to help interpret older gravestones during your own visits to cemeteries.
