Extreme History Project Lecture : Symbolism in the Cemetery

MOR is pleased to host the Extreme History Project lecture series that encourages public understanding of the way our history has shaped our present. Speakers take a fresh look at interesting historical topics.

Cemeteries are like outdoor museums, full of beauty, history, and symbolism. If we look close enough, the art engraved on the historic headstones can give us clues to the past. Crystal Alegria will lead you through the symbolism of Bozeman’s historic Sunset Hills Cemetery, focusing on a series of engraved headstones. She will de-code the symbolism, telling complex and fascinating stories of our town founders buried below.

MOR invites adults to learn more about our past and future through various speakers year-round. We are proud to partner with the Gallatin Valley Friends of the Sciences, the Extreme History Project, and the Gallatin History Museum in lectures throughout the year at Museum of the Rockies. All lectures have a limited capacity and are open on a first-come, first-served basis. Attendees may not save seats for others.
