OUTSIDE THE CITY
Historic Forest Hills Cemetery Walking Tour!
July 25, 2010
Victorians were in love with their homes, which they constructed as idealized sanctuaries imbued with their personal sensibilities and a feeling of abundance. They filled their rooms with family photographs, souvenirs from travels, and furniture covered in rich fabrics – and every detail had meaning. When the time came, they planned their final resting places with the same combination of design flair, symbolic meaning, and emotional investment. Join social historian Dee Morris for a tour illuminating the sense of home and family expressed in the exquisite carved memorials found throughout the Cemetery’s lush landscape.
