Discovering the Dead at Oakwood Cemetery



Join historian Bruce Miller and Robin Simonton, Executive Director, Historic Oakwood Cemetery, for an engaging course about the lives of our famous (and infamous) permanent residents. Along the way, we’ll learn about the history of cemeteries, how modern burial grounds work, monument art and symbolism, and the history of those who lived in our community.  With 151 years spread out over 72 acres, we'll learn a lot.  This course will be held on the Oakwood Cemetery grounds, so be prepared for some weeks with lots of walking and standing. In cases of inclement weather, this course may be held on Zoom.

Specific directions will be sent prior to the first class. 

Registration deadline: Sept. 12
