The Framingham History Center presents a spooky Halloween tradition that began at the Old Burying Ground has moved to this beautiful “garden cemetery” modeled after Mount Auburn in Cambridge. Join us for a stroll and visit with some of the luminaries buried here. You will hear from: Mary Eames who was the first person interred at Edgell Grove; mapmaker—Warren Nixon; General George Gordon and his wife Lizzie; historian, Josiah Temple, and a Revolutionary War soldier who died of smallpox and was reinterred in the soldier’s lot before developers destroyed his original grave behind Framingham’s “pest house”. There are others who are waiting to tell you their tales, but we don’t want to spoil their surprise!
