Event: Lecture
Location: Arlington, MA

On Tuesday February 28 Rosemarie Smurzynski, a docent since 2010 at Mount Auburn Cemetery, will present a program for the Arlington Historical Society on Mount Auburn Cemetery. The program will be held at the Masonic Temple at 19 Academy Street. It is free for members of the Arlington Historical Society and $5.00 for non-members.

Founded in 1831, Mount Auburn was the first rural cemetery in America. Created in the woodlands of Cambridge and Watertown, it honors those who have died and are buried there, brings comfort to those who grieve, and offers pleasure to the everyday visitor. The cemetery is an outdoor museum, started at the time when there was no outlet for public art, a horticultural paradise, and a bird sanctuary.

In an article in Sweet Auburn magazine, published by the cemetery, Rosemarie told about her passion for the cemetery and commitment to her volunteer work there. Her walking tours at the cemetery cover themes from mothers to symbols, to poets and angel art. They have included narratives commemorating those who served in the Civil War and those who held the banner in the Boston Suffrage Movement. In this program Rosemarie will take you on a virtual walk through the cemetery. The cemetery remains active and growing while honoring its tradition of innovation.

Rosemarie Smurzynski is a retired Unitarian Universalist minister who has lived in Arlington with her husband, Tom, for over 50 years.
