The Tewksbury Historical Society is planning our Annual Cemetery Tour on October 21 (6:00pm) and October 23 (3:30pm) This is an evening event so bring your flashlight. Kim Zunino, the leader of the tour is hoping for good weather this year. You will learn some Tewksbury Civil War history along with explanations of cemetery lore from our resident expert.
