The Rochester Historical Society is Really into Stones

In May and June, the Rochester Historical Society will be talking area stones. On May 18 at 7:00 pm, Rochester resident, Steve DiMarzo, will present a program on the ancient carvings on area rocks that he has studied and documented. The program will be at the Rochester Historical Museum, 355 County Road.

            Turning to a different type of stone, Jeff Stevens will present a talk on the meaning of tombstone carvings in colonial New England cemeteries and be June 15 at 7:00 pm.

A special event will be held on June 12 at 1:00. There will be a guided tour of the Rochester Center Cemetery. There is not a lot of parking at the cemetery, but attendees can park at Plum Corner or at the Senior Center. Any questions about these events can be directed to Connie Eshbach at or call 508 763 4932. We’re hoping to see a lot of you at these upcoming events.
