Exploring Providence’s North Burial Ground
Tuesday, January 17, 2023
Exploring Providence’s North Burial Ground  (Member Meetings)
7:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Online via Zoom

On Tuesday, January 17th at 7:30 pm Annalisa Heppner will present via Zoom: History, landscape, and big personalities-why exploring a cemetery can be one of the best ways to “meet” history. This presentation will feature a brief history of North Burial Ground, show historic and contemporary photos of our landscape, and introduce you to some of the folks from our “Dared to Live Different” tour, which highlights North Burial Ground “residents” who defied the norms of their time. Learn about some of the tools North Burial Ground has for historians and genealogists and what we have planned to make exploring NBG even more fun and productive.

Annalisa Heppner, M.A. is the City Cemetery Director for the City of Providence. She comes to the cemetery industry from a career in archaeology where she worked in private, state, and federal capacities. She is passionate about the way cemeteries can tell the stories of every day people, and provide a tangible connection to the past.
