New Jersey Cemeteries & Tombstones: History in the Landscape


New Jersey Cemeteries & Tombstones:  History in the Landscape

Join us on Sunday, March 25, 2018 at 2 PM  at the Ocean County Historical Society, 26 Hadley Avenue, Toms River, NJ 08753, to enjoy an informative and entertaining talk by Dr. Richard Veit, Chair of the History and Anthropology Department at Monmouth University, as he tells about his research on NJ cemeteries and tombstones.  From the earliest memorials used by Native Americans to the elaborate structures of the present day, Dr. Veit uses grave markers to take an off-beat look at New Jersey’s history that is both fascinating and unique.  He describes burial places from High Point to Cape May and from the banks of the Delaware to the Jersey Shore to explain what cemeteries tell us about people and the communities in which they live. No admission fee.  Donations are accepted. Refreshments served.  Call 732-341-1880 to reserve your seat.
