The Art of Littleton’s Cemeteries- presented by Carolyn Mueller
You may think of a cemetery as strictly a utilitarian place where we bury our dead, or a peaceful park we visit during a funeral or Memorial Day.  Bit it could also be thought of as a museum of local folk art and customs that have evolved over time.   In this slide show, we trace the evolution of gravestone “art” and our outlook on life and death from the Colonial period to present day.

The Littleton Historical Society is a private, non profit organization devoted to the preservation of Littleton’s history, the dissemination of information, and the promotion of interest in local history
