Belfast — Megan Pinette, Belfast historian and cemetery trustee, will lead a walking tour of Grove Cemetery Saturday, Oct. 20, beginning at 1 p.m.

Meet at the Cemetery Chapel at 21 Belmont Ave. A suggested donation of $10 is requested to benefit the Chapel Fund.

The tour will last about an hour and will feature people associated with the First Church, which celebrates 200 years in 2018, and also early settlers and their families.

This year marks the 300th anniversary of the arrival of the Scotch-Irish to New England. Most of Belfast's original settlers were of Scotch-Irish origin.

The recently restored Cemetery Chapel will be open from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be served. Rain date is Oct. 27.
