What are the tours about? Is it more historical, genealogical, etc.?
The tours are historical and biographical. I tell a story about the person buried at each stop on the tour and explain how that person’s accomplishments or circumstances relate to larger themes in Lowell and American history. There is also some information about burial rituals and cemetery art.
