Have you ever strolled through a cemetery and looked at old gravestones? Many are
decorated with designs, quotes, or engravings that had special meaning for the deceased
or their loved ones. Take a walk with us through the Beech Island Cemetery where
Governor Hammond and many of his descendants are buried. Learn about gravestone
motifs and the movement to protect, preserve, and document cemetery history. Special
instructions and alternatives to the traditional gravestone rubbings will be discussed so
that you may capture interesting designs without damaging these fragile markers.
Participants must register by the day before the program.
 
Admission: $6 per person
