TOMBSTONES AND TEA – A Guided Historical Walking Tour of the General Protestant Cemetery, Topsail Road, with folklorist and storyteller Dale Jarvis. Stately and steeped in history, the General Protestant Cemetery is the final resting place to everyone from merchant families to labourers, soldiers, noted photographers, poets, Chinese laundrymen, and the tragic victims of some of Newfoundland’s worst sailing disasters. This walking tour will introduce you to some of the cemetery’s most intriguing residents, the significance of gravestone symbols, and the work of local stone carvers, all beneath the shade of some of the last old growth trees in St. John’s.
