with Ron Romano

Calendar Next session starts May 11, 2024 at 12 pm, runs for 1 week
1 additional session on May 11, 2024

Black Point Cemetery has roots back to Scarborough's earliest days. Hand-carved gravemarkers from the late 1700s and early 1800s have survived, some of which were imported from Boston but others that were created in the shop that stonecutter Bartlett Adams opened in Portland in 1800. Thisone hour tour through the old section will focus on colonial burial practices, stone types, and the iconography found on the gravemarkers of some of Scarborough's founding families. Both walks take place onsite at Black Point Cemetery, at the corner of 7th Avenue and Black Point Road in Scarborough. Maximum of 20 participants per walk.
