Tour Gilmanton’s Beech Grove Cemetery with Gilmanton Historical Society July 24

​Tour Gilmanton’s historic Beech Grove Cemetery on Tuesday, July 24th beginning at 6 pm with the Gilmanton Historical Society.


On July 24th, the Gilmanton Historical Society will lead a walking tour of Beech Grove Cemetery. This beautiful, but little known, cemetery in The Corners is the resting place of many of the early residents of that part of Town. The tour will begin at 6:00pm and will be led by John Dickey, President of the Society. Please wear good walking shoes as the ground is uneven and walking will be required.


To access the cemetery, use Greeley Farm Road (the first right off of Route 140 when headed toward Gilmanton Iron Works from the junction of Routes 107 and 140). Parking will be along Greeley Farm Road. Someone will be there to show folks where to park and how to find the walking path into the cemetery.  For information contact John Dickey, 267-6098 or e-mail


This is the third program in the Society’s 2018 summer series.   On August 28th John Dickey offers a program of Gilmanton post cards.  The final program, on September 25th, brings Steve Blunt performing as John Hutchinson with Songs and Stories of the Hutchinson Family Singers.


The Society’s Museum in Old Town Hall is open every Saturday morning, 10 am to noon, June, July and August.


The programs are free and open to the public.  Donations to support the work of the Society are always welcome.
