The Cemetery’s Pest House, Mourning Museum, and Chapel will be open to the public and decorated for the holidays with greenery from the Cemetery grounds. Drop in the Cemetery Center for hot cider, cookies, and last-minute gifts. Everything in the Gift Shop is 25% off during the Open House! Unique gifts include packets of Cemetery heirloom flower seeds, birdhouses, and garden books for the beginner and pro alike. We also have many books on local history, and cookbooks galore – including our own fantastic award-winning cookbooks Food to Live For and Food To Die For, both by Jessica Ward.
