Description

Preservation Burlington and the Old East End Neighborhood Coalition (OEENC) hold a walking tour of Greenmount Cemetery on Colchester Ave. 
 
From the organizers:
 
"The Greenmount Cemetery is the oldest institution and architectural feature in Burlington, Vermont. In its landscape and monuments, the cemetery captures the community's history. The cemetery's most prominent and well-known feature is a monument to Ethan Allen, a man who was a prominent figure of the Revolutionary War and one of the founders of the State of Vermont. However, walking through the cemetery, you also can see surnames that appear on many of Burlington's street signs and buildings, representing the who's who of Burlington. Among these monuments are also those of shop owners, farmers, laborers, innkeepers, captains, and other folk, representing the great diversity of residents in the city since its founding in 1763."
