Topic: Galveston's Historic Broadway Cemeteries

Join us to learn about some of the fascinating history and secrets to be found in Galveston's historic cemeteries on Broadway. Recently receiving its designation on the National Register of Historic Places, this fascinating complex of cemeteries hold much more than meets the eye.  

As the resting place of many of the city's most illustrious as well as notorious citizens, this grouping of cemeteries links all the facets of the past that make the island a fascinating place: pioneers, architecture, medicine, war heroes, seafarers, the arts, business and brushes with fame. Their stories are laced with triumphs and tragedies and ready to be shared. 

Bio: Kathleen Shanahan Maca has been fascinated in the stories behind gravestones since she was a young girl. When her grandfather would walk through local cemeteries telling her about the people buried there.

Truth can truly be stranger and more intriguing fiction!
