Have you ever wondered what the artwork and symbols on old gravestones meant? Join Museum
Curatorial Assistant Chad Bogart and spend an evening in the burial ground at the historic Carter
Mansion. Learn how to translate the language of cemetery symbolism and how these images tell
the stories of the deceased. Also, learn how to make gravestone rubbings, a safe and non-
invasive way to capture the hard-to-see words and images on old tombstones. Program will begin
at the Carter Mansion Visitor Center and proceed to the cemetery.
The Carter Mansion is located at 1031 Broad Street, Elizabethton, TN 37643
Program length 90 minutes.
