“Oak Grove Cemetery, which was founded in1849, was recently listed on the National Register of Historic Places,” Phyllis Hunt, President of the Oak Grove Cemetery Association said. “Part of the program to celebrate the event was a tour of the oldest part of the cemetery led by our superintendent and Falmouth Cemetery Historian, Donna Walcovy. Our guests loved it so our board decided to offer a few tours for the public.”
