Walk Among the Shadows

This year’s theme of the Spirits Alive “Walk Among the Shadows” is “The Secret History of the Eastern Cemetery – Movers and Shakers in the Old Burial Ground.” Seven Spirits will rise from their graves to tell stories of their time in the Old Burial Ground: true tales of new stones, old stones, overcrowding, unexpected relocations, and more.
