Geneseo Stories in Stone" Temple Hill and St Mary's Cemeteries

March 19 at 1:30 pm

Jim Whitehead and Gretchen Crane will present about the history of the Temple Hill Cemetery and Saint Mary's Cemetery in Geneseo. Geneseo's two major Village cemeteries provide complementary, but distinctly different perspectives on  the Village during the 19th Century.  Temple Hill reflects a steady growth in wealth and influence.  St. Mary's provides a counterpoint, the story of two immigrant waves - Irish and Italian.  Together, the two cemeteries provide a portrait of a fairly typical American experience.

This program is cosponsored by the Association for the Preservation of Geneseo (APOG).
