About the event

This tour is a journey through Nashua's history within the hallowed grounds of the 1835 Unitarian Universalist Church cemetery. Led by volunteer reenactors adorned in period attire, each of the two available timed walking tours invites participants to listen to the stories of nine individuals interred in selected cemetery plots. As attendees carefully travel from grave to grave, they will experience poignant vignettes, each shedding light on the lives and legacies of Nashuans who played pivotal roles in shaping the city's identity, from community leaders to unsung heroes.

The tour aims to breathe life into the past and to foster an appreciation of local history, by offering participants a glimpse into bygone eras while standing close to the resting places of those who came before. The Notable Nashuans Cemetery Tour will be memorable for history enthusiasts and curious minds alike. Book your reservation soon, as tickets are limited.
