“Colonial Era Gravestones” Virtual Lecture
January 27, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
The first virtual lecture will be on the historic 17th and 18th century gravestones, in Springfield Cemetery. The city of Springfield has no surviving colonial-era buildings. However, some of the gravestones date as far back as 1657, these stones represent a range of styles and individual carvers who worked in the Connecticut River valley during this time. Join historian Derek Strahan on January 27 at 7pm on the Springfield Preservation Trust Facebook page as he traces the history of colonial-era gravestone designs in the area and highlights some of the local carvers whose works can be found here in the city.
