April 30 from 1:30 to 3:30 pm.

Famous people, gravestone iconography, and history all in one tour.

Rosedale Cemetery was founded over 150 years ago marking a change in the way American buried its deceased. The five acres of park-like grounds tell us fascinating stories of the people who shaped our history, the evolution of cemeteries and monuments, and the secret langague of grave imagery and decoration. Led by Executive Director Jane Eliasof and Manager of Audience Engagement Angelica Diggs, the tour explores a different section of Rosedale than the area explored in the Fall of 2016 tour. Admission is $10/person. Advanced registration is required by sending a note to mail@montclairhistorical.org or calling 973-744-1796.  Members may register beginning March 1. Non-member registration begins March 5. Payment required in advance for reservations of 3 or more. Tour begins at the Rosedale Chapel for a brief introduction at 408 Orange Road, Montclair, NJ. Carpooling is suggested due to limited parking on site. www.montclairhistory.org.
