Where: The Dickson Memorial Chapel
Friends of Greenlawn will hold an Artists, Authors, and Poets tour in Greenlawn Cemetery at 10AM. The tour will begin from the Dickson Memorial Chapel and is free. The event is also a fundraiser for the Friends’ preservation and restoration efforts for the 1894 Dickson Chapel. There will be Greenlawn related items both for sale and by silent auction. (Check out our brand new FOG gear page for a taste of what will be available.)
Among the stories on the tour will be the lives of people like Kate Tannatt Woods, who was a Salem public school teacher, a volunteer nurse at the front during the Civil War, a journalist, and author of many juvenile novels; and William Rowe Coane, a scenic artist and photographer in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
The Chapel is located just off the rotary inside the gates at 57 Orne Street in North Salem. There is parking outside the gates along Orne Street and inside Greenlawn around the Chapel.
