Event description

Description

FHET welcomes author and historian Dee Morris
for a Sunday afternoon lecture in the historic Forsyth Chapel


Now and Forever: Garden of Eternity


The remarkable landscape and history of Forest Hills Cemetery inspires visitors to contemplate eternity. Victorian spiritualists engraved their monuments with epitaphs stating their loved ones had “passed away” rather than “died.” Other lot owners used the symbol of clasped hands to represent eternal unity. Join us for a thoughtful discussion on different views of Forever.

Topics to include social connections, art, traditional funerary symbols, Victorian spiritualism, and some historic and contemporary residents of Forest Hills such as reformer and philanthropist Abby W. May and poet e.e. cummings.
