    Date: October 1, 2016 - October 31, 2016
    Event Description:
    As part of Archeology Month, the Sam Bell Maxey House is presenting "Gravestone Symbols and their Meanings in Evergreen."
    Gravestones are very personal things, used to represent the people that they honor. In the past, different symbols and carvings on gravestones held certain meanings and told the viewer something about the deceased.
    Throughout the month of October, visitors to Evergreen Cemetery will be able to learn about the meanings behind different symbols on the gravestones. Evergreen Cemetery is a local, historic cemetery located south of the Maxey House on Church Street. It is also where the Maxeys and the Longs are buried.
