Champions of Change: Women’s History Month Cemetery Walk
March 4 - March 31Free
To celebrate Women’s History Month, Hillside Cemetery has created a self-guided walking tour highlighting notable women of Wilton. With this new annual tradition, Hillside recognizes local women and their significant contributions to Wilton and beyond. You will meet a patriot, abolitionist, suffragette, community activist, Justice of the Peace, and journalist. On future tours, artists, writers, educators, entrepreneurs, and others will be featured. We have so many special women to celebrate here at Hillside!
The walk is both educational and inspirational. Meeting these special women reminds us that within each of us is the power to help make our community the place we want it to be now and in the future.
While some of the women buried at Hillside were once legendary public figures, others may only have been known and missed by a few family members. Hillside is an important place to realize the value of one’s own life by understanding that someone in the future may stand in the exact same place where you are standing today.
