Just in time for Halloween we will be having Gretchen Kaehler, Snohomish County Archaeologist/Cultural Resources Coordinator speak on the protections and state laws that pertain to historic, neglected, and abandoned cemeteries and historic gravesites.

Learn about why the role of local historical societies and citizens in protecting historic cemeteries is so important as well as what the challenges are with locating and recording these cemeteries.
