Enjoy an evening exploration of the historic and environmentally sensitive North Burial Ground with historian Robert O. Jones and ghost stories from writer, raconteur, and neighbor Mark Binder at a FREE public event hosted by the North Main Street Committee and the Summit Neighborhood Association on Tuesday, July 28 at 7pm.
This event will be enjoyed by families, neighbors and anyone with an interest in Providence history. The tour will meet on North Main Street at the cemetery entrance gate opposite the Providence Armory at 7 p.m. (This gate opens to marble steps into the cemetery. It is on the southbound side of North Main Street, just after the last office buildings, one long block after Walgreens as you head toward downtown.)
Robert O. Jones will lead a short walking tour from the gate. A local naturalist will provide an ecological context. At 8pm, we will return to the steps for snacks and ghost stories from Mark Binder.
Pre-registration is requested but not required. To register or to get more information, contact Greg Gerritt at 331-0529 or by email.
