“Aspin Hill Pet Cemetery: Montgomery County’s Famous Four-Legged Friends”
Aspin Hill Pet Cemetery, established in 1920, is more than simply a place where people put their pets to rest. It’s a place that reflects the life and times of the Washington region. There are famous pets, owned by or connected to movers and shakers of the twentieth century – presidents and their advisors, ambassadors, and a certain head of the FBI. There are also thousands of pets and owners who may be less influential than a president or a senator, but whose stories are equally fascinating. In this presentation, Julianne Mangin shares not only the history of the cemetery and those who ran it, but entertaining stories gleaned from newspapers, photographs, land records, and the inscriptions on the grave stones found at the cemetery.
This session will be conducted via Zoom. More information about how to attend this virtual presentation is available at MontgomeryHistory.org.
