Major Corporate Line-Of-March Donors and Sponsors

Please patronize out sponsors.  Thank you all for your support.

We'd also like to acknowledge the various retirement facilites in Tewksbury.  Our Interim President, Dave Marcus, has given historical talks to the residents of Heatherwoods, Bayberry, Blair House, and Meadowview.  The response has been gratifying.  We are lucky to have these wonderful facilities in our Town.   

​What's the difference between a cemetery and a burial ground?  

Please Note:  Our email address has changed.  Our new address is Info@TewksburyHistoricalSociety.org

The answer, and more, will be explained on October 18, 2015, starting at the Tewksbury Cemetery on East Street at 3:00pm.  Kim Zunino is our resident expert on our Burial Grounds, gravestones and the various Cemeteries in town.  The tour will take participants through the Old Center Cemetery and the Tewksbury Cemetery and explore the final resting places of Tewksbury's founding citizens. Learn about gravestone symbols and burial customs of our ancestors.

Archaeology is the science of looking back in history and appreciating and learning about structures, people, and events that are marked by what was left behind. The native people who lived at the Heath Brook site for 5,000 years left behind many objects that are on display at our town library’s Local History Room. And all the stonewalls in town are reminders of the past.  What better place to learn about the past than taking a trip to a graveyard?  

This Annual Cemetery Tour is open to the public and a small fee of $5.00 will be charged to non-members.  Society members will be allowed to attend for free but you must register ahead of time.  Society membership is open to the public.  Join and learn about Tewksbury history.   Download our membership form

In case of rain, the tour will be postponed to October 25.
