Hallowed Ground:  How We Remember Our Dead

October 5, 2015 - March 5, 2016


This exhibit will explore the history of how society has mourned and memorialized its dead, focusing on Southern traditions and how they compare to practices around the world. This exhibit will highlight four different cemeteries in Gaston County and share the stories of some of the people buried there. We will also explore how funerals have changed over the years through our local funeral homes.
