A Shepaug Libraries Program
Presented by the Burnham Library
The Burnham Library brings you this fascinating glimpse into history. Connecticut is a geological marvel where varied rocks and minerals abound. Gravestones were colonial Connecticut’s earliest art form and export industry. Produced by stonecutters in dozens of small shops, these works are expressive windows into the past.
