Learn more about Westport’s cemeteries including related upcoming events.  Why and how are Westport’s cemeteries (including smaller burial grounds) registered with the Massachusetts Historical Commission?  Where can I find information about these cemeteries?  What are some of the rules and regulations that affect cemeteries? Can I clean the gravestones and/or maintain a private cemetery?  Can I be buried in an old private cemetery?  Where do I report if I find a gravestone? Learn about the Historical Society’s grave cleaning initiatives which will continue in the spring and summer.  Get details about the Cemetery Tour of selected cemeteries on October 10, 2020 highlighting the stories of Mayflower passenger descendants.  Learn about volunteering for these activities and be ready to contribute your own ideas! This is an informal discussion led by Betty Slade. Suggested donation $5.
