Sunday, June 27, 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm – Collectors & Philanthropists Tour

Join Anthony Sammarco for a tour on Sunday, June 27 highlighting the lives of intriguing collectors and generous philanthropists buried at Forest Hills Cemetery, 95 Forest Hills Avenue, Boston. The Jordans of Jordan Hall, Forsyth of the Forsyth Dental Clinic, and Carney of Carney Hospital are just a few of the men who made vast fortunes and then became patrons of the arts, science, and social causes. Many wealthy women were also active philanthropists, such as Pauline Agassiz Shaw, founder of the North Bennet Street School and supporter of the American kindergarten movement, pictured below.

Meet at Main Gate. Wear comfortable shoes and bring water; this is a 2-hour walk (with frequent stops) over varied terrain. Admission: $9.  For more information, log on to
