Join Allison Horrocks and Linda Hixon of the Hopedale Women’s History Project on Sunday, October 28, 2018, at 4:30 p.m. for a twilight tour of Hopedale Village Cemetery, starting at the Ballou family monument.
Hear anecdotes about the women of Hopedale’s past, from the early community through the Draper years. Learn how they tried to speak to their dead loved ones, how they buried their babies and sent their sons to die in war, how they stood up to abolish slavery and gain the right to vote, and even how one lived to be 100!
Our community project is dedicated to telling the story of 150 years of Hopedale women’s history, and we want to share what we’ve found with you. Bring an umbrella if it rains!
