In their 1960 history of Manchester, Otis and Bigelow wrote that Dellwood is “one of the most beautiful cemeteries in the state.” It is also filled with interesting people whose lives form the fabric of the town’s history. On Thursday, July 6, at 6 pm, the ManchesterHistorical Society and Dellwood Cemetery will welcome members of the Dorset Players who will stand among the gravestones in a section of Dellwood and recount interesting highlights of the lives of some of those who are buried in this beautiful park cemetery.  Figures to be highlighted include business owners, community pillars, commercial developers, war heroes, and local legends.

While a version of this was first performed several years ago, this presentation will include new personalities and added material, thanks to MHS Curator Shawn Harrington’s research prowess. Running time: approximately 90 minutes. Free will donations will be gratefully accepted (with a suggestion of $10 per person). Rain date: July 7. In order to plan for parking and audience space, we request that those planning to attend let us know the size of your group via the event post on the MHS and Dellwood Facebook pages or by email to
