Wells Tour of Granary Burying Ground, 18 June

Charles Chauncey Wells and Suzanne Austin Wells, authors of Preachers, Patriots & Plain Folks: Boston’s Burying Ground Guide to King’s Chapel, Granary and Central Cemeteries, will lead a free public tour of the Granary Burying Ground this Thursday, 18 June.

The tour starts at the Congregational Library, 14 Beacon Street in Boston, at 12:00 P.M. Participants should bring their lunches. There will be a book-signing after the program, which, judging by the knowledge the authors bring and the number of historic names dropped in the press release, promises to be lengthy.
