Join us Sunday, October 25th for a historical tour of Eastern Cemetery. Eastern is nationally known for its long dark history of overburial and neglect. This Sunday, come hear the tales of those who reside inside the walls of Eastern. Tours are scheduled to start every hour on the hour from 9am until 1pm. Tours will be led by volunteer Joel Berndt who has dedicated much of his time developing these tours to help raise awareness about Eastern Cemetery and teach the community about the impact that those laid to rest at Eastern had on our community, the Commonwealth, and even the nation.
There is no admission charge for these tours. However, donations will be graciously accepted. The Friends of Eastern Cemetery is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, so 100% of your donations go to the upkeep of Eastern Cemetery.
