From burial grounds in the Connecticut woods, to the farm fields of Western Massachusetts, to the mountains of New Hampshire and the shores of Maine, take a virtual tour of New England’s graveyards, direct from the pages of Roxie Zweigler’s book: Haunted Cemeteries of New England.

Zweigler will discuss Colonial burial customs and beliefs, and share ghost stories from some of the most beautiful and long forgotten cemeteries in the northeast. Learn about the ancient symbolism, stone carvers and stories behind some of New England’s oldest gravestones. Copies of her book will be available for purchase.

She has given hundreds of lectures throughout New England and New York over the past 10 years, and has been featured on numerous television programs including the History Channel, Travel Channel and NECN.
