Mt. Pleasant Cemetery Walking Tour – Oct 5th, 12:15

Hello, this is just a reminder that I’m leading a walking tour of Newark’s beautiful, historic Mt. Pleasant Cemetery on Sunday, October 5th, at 12:15. Along with Fairmount Cemetery, Mt. Pleasant was the place for affluent 19th century Newarkers to be buried, so if you want to connect with Frelinghuysens, Ballantines, Kinneys, Drydens, and more, this is your chance.
Mt. Pleasant Cemetery is on a very attractive, somewhat spooky, 36 acres. Though it might seem odd to visit a cemetery today for anything but a burial, Victorians frequently visited their dead, and hence, invested a great deal of thought and money in their funerary monuments. Please come and appreciate this incredibly historic site.
