Burial Hill Hunt – a daytime activity
This interactive 90 minute tour is a hit with school groups and young adults of all ages! The tour includes an introduction to graveyard art, a few amazing stories about the people buried here. Then your group is broken down into small groups and given clipboards and clues. After some preliminary instructions teams set out to solve their mystery and learn about some of the famous people buried here. The participants have an opportunity to rub a plaster cast of a stone (so we don’t do damage to these precious 17th,18th & 19th century stones) to take a grave rubbing home as a souvenir.
Burial Hill is one of the oldest cemeteries in America dating back to the late 1600’s. The view of Plymouth Harbor from this site is spectacular! Could also be a unique birthday experience.
Price: $12.00 p.p. minimum number 15.
