Join QAHN’s “Scandal Makers” team of local historians as they travel the cemeteries of the Eastern Townships in search of long-dead Townshippers, the notorious and the infamous, who lie in rest in the burial grounds of Stanstead and Compton counties.
In this special event, the local all-star cast, including Kathy Curtis of the Colby-Curtis Museum and QAHN president Grant Myers, will introduce us to the stories of those buried in our cemeteries. We will show excerpts from the upcoming series, chat live with the featured cast, and have a Q&A to follow.
QAHN’s mission to protect and preserve the history and heritage of Quebec includes the historic and often abandoned cemeteries that are found in the rural landscape across the province. The documentaries are a way of keeping the past from fading away by continuing to tell the stories of the dearly (or infamously) departed and to engage the nearby communities in the care and protection of the cemeteries. It is hoped that this series will educate people about the importance of protecting these sites, seeing them as important to a community’s past and Quebec’s history in general.
