Wondering about the residents of this Somerville Avenue Cemetery?
The gates of the Milk Row Cemetery on Somerville Avenue will be open on the above dates from 1:30 to 4 pm. This small historic site, established in 1804, is usually closed to the public except for two annual events in May and October. Volunteer docents dressed in historic period clothing will be on hand to help people learn a little about the buried residents, from as far back as Revolutionary times, and their history within the community, once known as "Beyond the Neck.” The grounds may also be appreciated as a peaceful retreat for reading and contemplation.
If interested in being a Docent, or joining a Friends of the Milk Row Cemetery group, or for more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-625-6600 x2532 or Barbara Mangum at email@example.com or 617-331-7726.
