Night of the Living Dead IV at Benjamin Cemetery. Saturday, September 30, 6:00pm. Free admission. For the last three years, the residents of Worthington’s cemeteries have designated a night to rise from their eternal slumber and tell their stories to the living. We hear the residents of Benjamin Cemetery – including Samuel Clapp, James Benjamin, and Priscilla Benjamin – are anxiously awaiting their turn from their remote location off West Street.

To get to Benjamin Cemetery, follow Kinne Brook road from its intersection with Rte. 112. After one mile, turn right. The road forks again immediately; stay straight on Curtis Road. At the next fork, bear right on Curtis Road. (In other words, do not take Almon Johnson Road, which is not passable.) At the “T,” turn left on West Street, and proceed about eight-tenths of a mile to a sign for Benjamin Cemetery on the left. A trail leads to the cemetery, which is about two-tenths of a mile into the woods. The red arrow on the map below points to the location.

Please bring a flashlight, and a lawn chair if you like.

 

Annual Meeting. October date to be determined. The main agenda is to discuss the 250th anniversary of Worthington’s incorporation as a town, which falls on June 30, 2018 – and for those of us alive in 1968 to relate memories of the Bicentennial celebrations.

    Wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the walk thru North Cemetery with some local legends. What a great experience and fantastic way to see/hear history in action. All the dead did a great job recollecting about their lives especially “Kat Rice”! Kudos to Maddy.
    Hope there are more walks in the future.
