Highland Cemetery Walking Tour with Patricia Fanning @ Morrill Memorial Library, Simoni Room | Dover | Massachusetts | United States

Patricia Fanning will lead a walking tour of Highland Cemetery,  the resting place of many flu epidemic victims.  The walk literally illustrates history as we re-trace the steps of the grieving families and the overwhelmed town officials. Meet at Highland Cemetery, 320 Winter St. in Norwood. There will be a simultaneous Flu Shot Clinic on the cemetery grounds, courtesy of the Norwood Public Health Dept. (Rain Date Sun. 10/28)

This collaborative program series was born from a desire to recognize the 100-year commemoration of the 1918  Flu Epidemic, and the impact it had on the people of our town. Please join us for this exciting and informative series. This program series is funded in part by Mass Humanities, which receives support from the Massachusetts Cultural Council and is an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

There is no need to sign up in advance for this program, just meet at Highland Cemetery. If you’d like to sign up for other programs in the series, you may do so by filling out the form below, calling 781-769-0200 x110, or visiting the Information or Reference desks.
