A tour of the cemetery will follow a brief talk on how people mourned in the 19th and early 20th centuries, and how the Oneida Community understood and practiced death and the afterlife.
This walking tour, led by curator of education Molly Jessup, will explore ways in which the cemetery reflects community beliefs and reveals changing Community practices over time. Jessup will also share stories about the lives and deaths of notable Community members such as Mary Cragin and Tirzah Miller.
Participants should wear comfortable hiking or walking shoes and appropriate clothing for the weather. The event is free for members, non-members are $7 and students (ages 8 & up): $3. Call 315-363-0745 to register.
