Join us for a stroll and visit with some of the luminaries buried here. You will hear from: Mary Eames who was the first person interred at Edgell Grove; mapmaker Warren Nixon; General George Gordon and his wife Lizzie; historian, Josiah Temple, and a Revolutionary War soldier who died of smallpox and was reinterred in the soldier's lot before developers destroyed his original grave behind Framingham's "pest house."
