“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.”

Most people know Katharine Lee Bates is buried in Oak Grove and so are other significant people to the development and history of Falmouth; Whaling Captains, Ship Builders, war veterans from the Revolutionary War to the present, captains of Industry and many more.
