  Guided Tour of Early Graves in Hillside Cemetery

Guided Tour of Early Graves in Hillside Cemetery

Sharon, CT:  On Saturday, March 30 at 2 PM, the Sharon Historical Society & Museum will host a free public guided tour of the oldest part of Hillside Cemetery. The tour will include visits to the unusual graves of small pox victims as well as those of significant people in the history of medicine in Sharon. Tour guides will be Marge Smith and Susan Shepard, Co-Curators of the Historical Society’s current exhibit entitled "Sharon Cures: Centuries of Medicine in One Small Town."

Visitors will receive a handout with a map of the original cemetery, and two lists of the graves involved in the tour, with original inscriptions, bios of the people and photos of their houses if known. The story of the 18th century battle against small pox is heartbreaking, and resonates today as we struggle with the debate over vaccinations.  Most of the graves on the tour are of the actual victims, including young children, and reveal the tragedy of the epidemics that repeatedly took a toll on Sharon. We will also visit the grave of the Rev. Cotton Mather Smith, Sharon’s beloved early minister who tended to small pox victims himself, and several other early doctors and midwives.  Two important modern Sharon physicians featured in the exhibit are buried here: Dr. William Bradley Coley considered today to be the Father of Immunotherapy, and Dr. Jerome S. Chaffee, founder of Sharon Hospital.

Visitors should gather at the Civil War Monument at the top of the Green by the intersection of Main Street and Cemetery Road.  Parking is available along Main Street, behind the Town Hall (63 Main Street, ¼ mile walk) and at the shopping center (10 Gay Street, ½ mile walk), for those who can walk from there distance to Cemetery Road. PLEASE RSVP SO THAT WE KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE TO PREPARE FOR, and so that we can let you know if there will be a rain date. (860) 364-5688 or director@sharonhist.org 

Smith and Shepard, award-winning curators and area historians, developed the exhibit from the Sharon Historical Society collections, extensive research in original town documents and with advice from Connecticut medical specialists.  

The Sharon Historical Society & Museum is located at 18 Main Street, Sharon, CT.

For directions call (860) 364-5688, visit www.sharonhist.org or The Sharon Historical Society on Facebook.  Regular museum hours are Wednesday through Friday Noon to 4 pm and Saturday, 10 am to 2 pm.

  Taghhannuck Grange #100

Earth Scroll Open House

An Indoor Walking Tour Through the Seasons
Hosted by Taghhannuck Grange #100  
Donations to our Grange accepted but not required.


Who: Debra Tyler-farmer, artist, earth-justice advocate, and Granger 
What: Debra’s 50-foot “Earth Scroll.” The scroll is a multi-faith and globally-based block and leaf print. It chronicles the solar seasons, signs of the zodiac, rising and falling tides in accordance with the lunar phases, phenomenology of the natural world, numerous belief systems, and calligraphy in Hebrew, Greek, Arabic, and Chinese.

  • The scroll is hung around a 16' yurt lattice
  • Tours led at half-hour intervals starting at 1pm
  • Continuously running slide show about the creation of the scroll

Where: Grange Hall, 7 Dunbar Road, Sharon CT. 
When: Saturday, March 30th, 1pm to 3pm

Of the scroll, Debra says: "This three-year-in-the-making Earth Scroll project has been the most consuming, intriguing experience I've ever had. It often feels as if both Spirit and the piece are guiding me in its unrolling creation.  I am honored to be chosen as its vessel and curious as to where it will next lead me."   The scroll was last displayed at Arts on The Lake in Carmel, NY.    

Refreshments will be locally sourced including:  Fair Trade organic coffee roasted in Goshen by Coffee, Tea, Etc., Ellsworth Hill Farm cider, Bantam Bread, and Arethusa Farm cheese.

In keeping with the Grange mission “…[to] strengthen individuals, families and communities through grassroots action, service, education, advocacy and agriculture awareness,” Debra’s scroll encourages stewardship of the land and celebrates our global community.
