Guided Tour of Laurel Hill Cemetery Section II

with Ron Romano


Registration unavailable

Saco’s Laurel Hill Cemetery is a Local Treasure!

As a garden or rural cemetery, Laurel Hill was designed to encourage visitation. Its inviting pathways, sloping landscapes, and lush plantings provide a backdrop for a fine variety of gravestone styles, materials and symbols. Join cemetery historian Ron Romano on this walking tour that focuses on monuments versus family genealogies. Held rain or shine. Wear comfortable shoes for this 90-minute stroll. Proof of registration required. Register early; this class fills fast! 

Ron Romano is a cemetery historian and author of four gravestone & cemetery-themed books. He serves as an officer on the national nonprofit board of the Association for Gravestone Studies and is a frequent lecturer on early Maine gravestones and their makers. Formerly the leader of the walking tour program for Portland’s 350-year-old Eastern Cemetery, he’s guided countless visitors through that historic site and has led tours at many other historic cemeteries in Southern ME.
