Get into the Halloween spirit and join us on a tour through 3 of Boston's burying grounds.
If you ever wanted to learn about the customs surrounding death and dying in Puritan New England, or you simply enjoy walking among the dead, Grave Undertakings might be for you.
The death experts will take you from the King's Chapel Burying Ground, where you will learn of the mysterious Charlestown Carver (now, there's an idea for a Halloween costume), to the Granary Burying Ground, and on to the Central Burying Ground. The symbolism on the grave markers, the practices, traditions, and the whereabouts of some people you might know will be discussed during the walk.
This pre-Halloween event is $15 ($5 if you are a Boston By Foot card-carrying member -- see www.bostonbyfoot.org/join/member for more information).
