The Friends of the Grove Street Cemetery and the Faculty of Graphic Design at Yale School of Art invite you to attend a tour and lecture by Nicholas Benson, proprietor of the John Stevens Shop in Newport, Rhode Island.
The tour begins at the Grove Street Cemetery gate at 2:30 pm. The lecture takes place at 4 pm in the Yale School of Art sculpture building at 36 Edgewood Avenue (between Howe and Park streets), New Haven. An informal reception will follow. This event is free of charge and open to the public.
This stone—marking Carl Lohmann’s grave in Grove Street Cemetery—was carved by John Howard Benson, Nicholas Benson’s grandfather, at the John Stevens Shop.
