Perfect for a Friday the 13th in October, Beverly Lucas, Director of the Cedar Hill Cemetery Foundation, will be presenting a terrific program on Hartford’s well-known and beautiful Cedar Hill Cemetery. Established in 1864 in the Victoria era “rural” style, Cedar Hill encompasses 270 acres of landscaped woodlands, waterways, and memorial grounds. An urban oasis, Cedar Hill serves as a sanctuary for Connecticut history, impressive funerary art, and natural beauty.
To date, more than 35,000 people have been laid to rest at Cedar Hill including manufacturing magnate Samuel Colt, financier and philanthropist John Pierpont Morgan, discoverer of anesthesia Horace Wells, Tuskegee Airman Lemuel Custis, and four-time Best Actress Oscar winner Katharine Hepburn.
This program is free and open to the public. Please make plans to join us!
