Ron Romano will present "The Anatomy of a Gravestone " Wednesday, July 11 at 6:30PM in the All Souls Chapel in the Poland Spring Resort located at 37 Preservation Way, Poland, ME 04274Southern Maine's early cemeteries are rich with folk art. Beautifully hand-carved gravestones created by local stonecutters are readily found throughout our region. But what do the gravestone symbols - urns & willows, skulls & crossed bones, and pointing fingers - really mean? In this heavily-illustrated presentation, cemetery historian and author Ron Romano will describe the anatomy of a gravestone, discuss the types of materials found in our burial grounds and explain the meanings of dozens of gravestone icons. Suggested donation is $5 and will benefit the Poland Spring Preservation Society.
