Virtual Mount Hope Cemetery Tour

May 27, 2021 at 4:00 pm 5:00 pm

Join us on our next virtual presentation on May 27th at 4PM where we will take a walk through Mount Hope Cemetery. While Mount Hope is best viewed in person and walking through the grounds, we will be looking at some of the more notable and interesting stones and stories of the cemetery.

Built in 1834, Bangor’s 300 acre Mount Hope Cemetery is the nation’s second oldest garden cemetery. It was designed by renowned architect Charles G. Bryant as part of a national movement to provide respite from grassless urban landscapes. Garden cemeteries were created as much for living as for those who had passed on.

For a Zoom invitation please email curator@bangorhistoricalsociety.org. The presentation will also be streamed via Facebook Live and available in our video section of our Facebook page if you are unavailable that day.

We hope to see you.
