[ARCHIVED] Bizarre Burial Beliefs and Traditions

Funeral bells

Join us from 1 to 2 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 17, at R.H. Stafford Library and take a visual journey back to the days of cemetery bells, receiving vaults, and funerals that took place in your own parlor. Explore gruesome tales of being buried alive and learn the many precautions that our grandparents took to ensure that their loved one would not come back from the grave to torment them. When we factor in worldwide beliefs, things become and more surreal.
