Louise Helen Coburn’s Colby College Portrait

“Stone Stories” The tour will focus on the older section of the Southside Cemetery on Main Street.
This guided historic walking tour explores the Southside Cemetery through some of the stories of citizens buried there. It focuses on how their lives intermingle with the history of Skowhegan.
You will hear accounts of Revolutionary War Veterans as well as Civil War veterans and a lone Confederate Soldier. You will also hear accounts of a local druggist, housewright, photographer,
governor, lawyer, and authors. It will also include stories of unusual stones, some old houses and the very different “Baby’s Lot”.
Please bring a hat (not much shade here), walking shoes, water, and perhaps, a lightweight folding chair. Donation: $5 per person.
