The 2nd Annual Cemetery Tour November 1st @ New Canaan Historical Soceity

Halloween continues for an extra day with our second Cemetery Tour on November 1st.  Patricia Funt Oxman, antique dealer and Historical Society volunteer, is joined by Patricia Brooks, author of Where the Bodies Are, to conduct the tour.

The group will tour a classic country graveyard in North Stamford to visit the final resting place of a number of famous and noteworthy people, including Gilda Radner and Benny Goodman.  Some stories of their interesting lives will be told by Mrs. Oxman. 

Upon returning to The New Canaan Historical Society, enjoy a snack of cider and donuts, while listening to a brief talk by author Mrs. Brooks on the three books she has written about this fascinating subject.
Those going on the tour are asked to meet at the Historical Society at
12:45 pm.  The tour van will be leaving promptly at 1:00 pm.  The cost is $20 per person, and space is limited. To sign up for the tour, please call (203) 966-1776 or email
