Lowell Cemetery tours this week

The spring tours of historic Lowell Cemetery begin this week on Friday, May 4 at 1 pm and Saturday, May 5 at 10 am.

We have completely revised the tours this year. These May tours will all begin at the Lawrence Street entrance and will cover that half of the cemetery. The tours in the fall will begin at the Knapp Avenue entrance and will cover that part of the cemetery. There will be some overlap (everyone will see the Ayer Lion) but most of the tours this year will be brand new, so even if you’ve participated in one of the tours during the past few years, you will see and hear new things this year.

The tours take 90 minutes of walking over uneven ground and are conducted rain or shine. Parking is available along the avenues of the cemetery within the back gate.

Here are the dates for all upcoming tours:

Friday – May 4 – 1 pm
Saturday – May 5 – 10 am
Friday – May 18 – 1 pm
Saturday – May 19 – 10 am
