Many of us walk the cemetery to enjoy its peaceful nature and its historically and visually interesting headstones. But how many know the fascinating details of this lovely piece of land and its residents? In this class, we will wander among the graves of the famous and infamous as we discuss the development of the land and the challenges it has faced over the years, who died when and why, headstone symbols, burial customs, and more. We will also look at the botany of the cemetery, as well as the birds and animals that frequent this urban refuge.
