Milk Row Cemetery Tour, Somerville Massachusetts
The City of Somerville and Historic Somerville, Inc. will continue to celebrate May as Preservation Month with a tour of historic Milk Row Cemetery, 1804- about 1900. This cemetery was founded by Samuel Tufts on his farm in what was then Charlestown. It is quite small, but contains an extraordinary memorial to those who died from Somerville in the Civil War. The memorial was dedicated in 1863, prior to the war's end.
Milk Row Cemetery is located in Somerville, at 439 Somerville Avenue, next to Demoulas' Market Basket. The tour will last about an hour.
