Gravestone Symbols and their Meanings in Clarksville Cemetery

October 1, 2018 - October 31, 2018

Clarksville Cemetery
600 West Washington Street
Clarksville, TX 75426 United States


As part of Archeology Month, the Sam Bell Maxey House is presenting “Gravestone Symbols and their Meanings in Clarksville Cemetery.”  Gravestones are very personal things, used to represent the people that they honor. In the past, different symbols and carvings on gravestones held certain meanings and told the viewer something about the deceased.  Throughout the month of October, visitors to Clarksville Cemetery will be able to learn about the meanings behind different symbols on the gravestones. 

Every day in October from 8:00AM to Dusk
