Online Event - Join award-winning teacher Ken Ostrand as we Zoom around one of Hillsborough’s often overlooked treasures, the Old Town Cemetery. An archaeologist by training, Dr. Ostrand, will uncover some oft-overlooked people and some of the archaeological evidence that landed the Cemetery on the National Register of Historic Places. A Signer of the Declaration of Independence, a vice-presidential candidate, and State Supreme Court Chief Justice will stand in contrast to the many children who died of diseases before their time.
Dr. Ostrand was the leader of the 2015-18 effort to clean, restore and study the Old Town Cemetery.
