Coffins, Crypts and Contemporary Art: A Walking Tour of Morris Hill Cemetery

When: Sat., Nov. 1, 4 p.m. 2014

Cemeteries are like historical libraries, each headstone, plaque and grave marker a symbol of a person who was a member of the community. Cemeteries are also architectural archives, the headstones representing not only the people who lay beneath them, but the artist who created them and the era in which they were made. Join historians Dan Everhart and Amy Pence-Brown for walking tours through Boise's historic Morris Hill Cemetery, as they explain how cemeteries combine architecture, landscaping, statuary and glasswork to document the history, ethnicity and culture of their residents.
