Tomorrow morning (Saturday, August 28) at 9 a.m., Kim Zunino of the Lowell Historic Board will lead a tour of the School Street Cemetery. Surrounded by a stone wall in the midst of a century and a half old residential neighborhood, this cemetery is bounded by Branch, School and Middlesex Streets. I’ve passed repeatedly through my entire life, but I know nothing about it and have never set foot within it. That will all change tomorrow. I hope some of our readers can come along.
You can also mark your calendar with the dates of upcoming tours of the Lowell Cemetery with me as the tour guide. The Lowell Cemetery is located behind Shedd Park and runs all the way back to Lawrence Street and the Concord River. All tours begin at the Knapp Avenue entrance (next to Shedd Park), last about 90 minutes and are conducted rain or shine. Here are the dates and times:
Friday – September 10 – 1 pm
Saturday – September 11 – 10 am
Friday – October 1 – 1 pm
Saturday – October 2 – 10 am
