Something new is coming to the Old Jonesborough Cemetery this fall. A Spot on the Hill, an original, research-based play by Anne G’Fellers-Mason, will share the stories of the inhabitants in the old cemetery. Visit their makers and hear their tales of triumph and woe. How did these people come to Jonesborough? What kept them here, and what ultimately happened to them? What do the spirits at the top of the hill have to say? Come and listen to the real stories of real lives among real tombstones.
