details

CCHS volunteer, Lisa Brousse, will lead an updated tour of Ashland Cemetery. Historic Ashland Cemetery was dedicated in 1865. One of the first "garden" cemeteries in the area, it is home to many of Carlisle's wealthiest and most well-known citizens. This walking tour will provide a brief history of burial customs of the time and will discuss the changes in monument styles over the years. The tour will concentrate on the Bosler family and a few of their close friends. The tour involves a bit of walking and will take place rain or shine so please wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather. Meet inside the front gates of Ashland Cemetery.

Cost: $8/member; $12/nonmember; $5/school-age-children. Click here to register.
