Discover notable people from the past on a tour guided by historian Eileen McGuckian through beautiful and historic Rockville Cemetery. Names you see on street signs, schools, book covers, and histories have been inscribed here from the 1750s into the 21st century. Buried in Rockville Cemetery are generations of famous and lesser-known people…. all notable. Attitudes about remembrance, grave markers, and burial practices have evolved over the centuries in this colonial, rural, and lawn cemetery.
