Local historian Paul W. Marino has announced a walking tour of the north section of Hill Side Cemetery on Saturday, June 21. The walk starts at 2:30 p.m. at the top of the hill off Brown Street.

At 216 years old, Hill Side is North Adams’ oldest municipal cemetery and the permanent residence of many of the city’s earliest movers and shakers.

This particular walk was designed with children in mind and ends with a treasure hunt; Marino especially wants to see children in attendance.

Interested persons are advised to dress for the weather, wear sun block, walking shoes, a wide brimmed hat, and bring water. Rain or high wind cancels. Information: Marino at (413) 207-1344.
