Belfast — Join Megan Pinette, Belfast historian and cemetery trustee, on Saturday, July 14, for a walking tour of Grove Cemetery, located at 21 Belmont Ave.

Meet at the Cemetery Chapel, where the tour begins at 1 p.m. 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 Scots-Irish to New England. Most of the original settlers were of Scots-Irish origin.

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