Burlington Cemetery will become the classroom for a special program that will help visitors understand the special meaning of the often seen symbols or icons. Photos, maps and markers will help guests visit some of these gravestones first hand. The program, along with various funereal items from the past will be provided by Melinda Mitchell, owner of Madame Cora’s Emporium and Museum of Mortality and hosted by the Burlington Historical Society.
