Go back in time to Sunday 1899! We’re hosting a day in 1899 with food, music, tours, and photography all designed to take you back to the late 1800s, when North Burial Ground was the place to be on summer Sunday afternoon. Have a tintype made by Cole Casewell of AgNO3 labs; “meet” NBG residents with a special tour by the Rhode Island College North Burial Ground Project; Play Victorian lawn games with the Lippit House Museum; enjoy a picnic lunch on our grounds; and enjoy visiting North Burial Ground the way Providence residents did in the 1890s and beyond!
Historical dress is enthusiastically encouraged, but not required!
You can sign up for a tintype sitting by emailing after you’ve purchased your ticket-there are a limited number of sittings available, and tintypes range in price from 65-120 dollars depending on the size of the tintype.
Purchase your tickets below by selecting your picnic sandwich order.
