The New Canaan Historical Society to Hold its Third Annual Cemetery Tour
October 31, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm$25
What better way to celebrate Halloween than a trip to a local cemetery. Each year the tour, led by Patricia Funt Oxman, goes to a different local cemetery to explore noteworthy graves of celebrities and persons of local interest. This year’s destination is Putnam Cemetery in Greenwich. A van will leave from the Historical Society at 1 pm. The tour includes a wide range of people from charming comedian Victor Borge, opera singer Ezio Pinza, to famed designer Vince Camuto.
On returning to the Historical Society, the group will be treated to a talk with local author Patricia Brooks, who has written a number of books including “Where the Bodies Are.” Cider and treats will be served. The cost is $25 per person. For reservation call the Historical Society at (203) 966-1776, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
