Burying Ground Tours

Image of Gravestones, Stoneham Old Burying Ground
Generally, the Stoneham Historical Commission opens and leads guided tours of the Old Burying Ground twice a year: in May as part of Preservation Month and again in October to coincide with the town's Halloween Stroll.  

We have also added some narratives of a few of the more interesting or important stones in the OBG.  We will be adding more information as time permits.  While you're touring the site, just look for the number that corresponds to the recording.
