The Gravestone of the Rev. Jedidiah Dewey in situ. Postcard. The Bennington Museum.

LAST CHANCE! At the Bennington Museum, “Memento Mori” The Art and Commerce of Gravestones in Bennington to Close May 22. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

The exhibition takes place in two phases: the first phase, opening on February 2,  features photographs of gravestones taken by Daniel Farber (1906-1998), while the second phase, opening on March 10,  features original gravestones, including the markers (head and foot) created to memorialize Bennington’s first minister, Rev. Jedidiah Dewey, and a group of early stones from the Shaftsbury Center Cemetery, on loan from the Shaftsbury Historical Society, plus selections from an archive of manuscripts documenting the Rule family of stonecutters from Arlington during the 1820s.
