The Forgotten Irish of Mount Auburn Catholic Cemetery

The Forgotten Irish of Mount Auburn Catholic Cemetery

Join us for a presentation by cemetery historian Bill McEvoy, Jr. on the obscure Mount Auburn Catholic Cemetery in Watertown. 

Discover the lives of some of the 23,000 individuals buried there, the vast majority of whom were Irish, fleeing the Great Famine of the 1840s. 

Learn about what it was like to be an immigrant in 19th Century Boston - where they lived, how they died, and why they were buried in Watertown in a Catholic-only cemetery.

Registration is required. A Zoom link will be sent to registrants 1 hour before the program starts.
