Epitaphs: The Immortality of Words

Event Date:

Sunday, June 25 at 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM


How would you like to be remembered?  Victorians gave considerable thought to this concept.  An epitaph is described as “a statement commemorating or epitomizing a deceased person.”  Join us as we explore some of the fascinating epitaphs that grace the monuments of Oakland.  Whether brief or rambling, poignant or humorous, all provide insight into the person’s life.  It’s certain you’ll walk away with a favorite!
