Is Your Cemetery a Credit to Your Town?
October 6, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
On Tuesday, October 6th at 6:30 PM, enjoy “Is Your Cemetery a Credit to Your Town?,” a virtual lecture of the Coos History Museum in Oregon. Registration for this Zoom program is free. Becky Soules will present an overview of the Marshfield Pioneer Cemetery’s history and discuss challenges in creating interpretative materials for the site. Established in 1888, Marshfield encompasses four acres of green space with more than 2,000 gravesites. While the cemetery has suffered from extensive neglect and vandalism, with the support of community partners it has undergone a dramatic transformation. A multi-year project included replacing fencing, redesigning the main entrance, and a new interpretative display.
