May Historical Event


Wednesday, May 25th 7:00 PM

Knoblock headshotRubbings, photographs, and slides illustrate the rich variety of gravestones to be found in our own neighborhoods, but they also tell long-forgotten stories of such historical events as the Great Awakening, the Throat Distemper epidemic, and the American Revolution. Find out more about these deeply personal works of art and the craftsmen who carved them with Glenn Knoblock, and learn how to read the stone “pages” that give insight into the vast genealogical book of New Hampshire.  

This event is sponsored by the Kensington Historical Society and the Kensington Public Library. 

It is made possible through a generous grant from New Hampshire Humanities Council
