Voices from Another Time | The Kinney Cemetery

Description


In the Kinney Cemetery, the forest spirits share space with the departed! Abandoned for decades, this cemetery from the 1870s was restored in 2002 by volunteers from the Compton Historical Society.

A guide will reveal the little secrets of this heart-rending pioneer graveyard, and a ghost from the grave—Bernardine Patenaude-de La Bruère, whose father bought the land from the Kinney family in the early 1900s—will tell you tales from another time.

Together with its photographs and archival documents, this audioguide will help make your visit of the Kinney Cemetery a memorable one. Be sure to travel to the cemetery itself: onsite, you will fully appreciate the beauty and the spirit of the place!

N.B. We suggest that you use the tour preload option on your smart device (tablet or telephone) by selecting “Preload.” You will then be able to access all of the content when you are onsite via the “My Tours” menu and to be guided by GPS without having to be connected to the Internet. We also recommend the use of earphones to fully enjoy the audio content.
