Everyone had a lovely time, and the children especially enjoyed the historical re-enactments

The Art of Gravestone Rubbings...
This is an old event, from 2012
The Art of Gravestone Rubbings - Judith Burroughs. Rubbing gravestones is a rich rewarding experience for both the novice and the professional artist. The universal practice of rubbing gravestones and other markers if done properly and in accordance with local and state regulations does not harm stones or monuments . The technique of rubbing is creates an image that records features such as natural textures, inscribed patterns or lettering. This hands on program will introduce rubbing as a fascinating art form that will bring out the artist in each of us. Ms. Burroughs will teach participants easy to follow steps for creating a beautiful rubbing from stones located in one of New Milford's oldest graveyard, Center Cemetery. Old gravestones are an important part of our national heritage and are considered by many as remaining works of art that are still in their original form and place from our ancestors.
