Tamworth cemeteryJoin us on Wednesday, March 30th at 7:00 p.m., when Richard Maloon from the New Hampshire Old Graveyard Association will present a talk about why Tamworth has over twenty burial sites.

He will discuss the history of the Puritans, their traditions and how that led to what was called the New Hampshire way (vs. the Massachusetts way) for burying individuals and how this started back in the 17th century. Mr Maloon will also talk about ways to preserve these historic sites through education and practically by cleaning and preserving stones. This presentation is cosponsored by the Tamworth Cemetery Trustees.
