Cemetery Art Symbolism – Laurel Mellien, October 10, 2019

The program focuses on the rich symbolism displayed in cemeteries of the Victorian Era. Headstone art during this time period was carefully chosen by family members to properly represent the deceased. Many clues about the lives of the dearly departed can be discovered by learning the language of cemetery art symbolism. Laurel Mellien is a member of the Association for Gravestone Studies, and the author of History and Stories of the McHenry County Cemeteries.
