Reenactors at Old Cemetery will bring stories to life

Reenactors will bring to life the stories of some of the “residents” in the Old Milford Cemetery during the Milford Historical Society’s Saturday, Oct. 24 tour of the town’s oldest formal burial ground that was established in 1676.

This year there will be some “new” stories at different graves.

Participants are asked to gather in the DAR parking lot, 55 Prospect Street, by 12:45 p.m. for a 1 p.m. tour.

Tickets go on sale after Oct. 1 at the Society, 34 High Street, on weekends, 1 to 4 p.m. through Oct. 11. The cost is $5 for adults – no charge for children 12 and younger when accompanied by adults. Tickets will also be available from the Canvas Patch, 5 River Street.

Tickets will also be sold at the parking lot on the day of the tour. For more information, call (203) 877-1851.
