Historic Maplewood Cemetery Tours
Learn about Durham history with a real, live, guided tour of Durham’s famous Old Maplewood Cemetery. Preservation Durham tour guides take small groups around the cemetery pausing here and there to tell stories of triumph and tragedy, joy and sorrow, wealth and inequity, lives long and short. Learn about funerary traditions and grave art and architecture. All this in what is perhaps Durham’s loveliest urban open space.
We are conducting running loop tours, and guests have the opportunity to join any loop in progress at their pleasure between 10 am and 4 pm on Saturday.
