For the 2024 commemoration of Juneteenth, Jillian LaCaresse, representing the Marlborough Preservation Society and member of Marlborough Congregational Church, will be heading up a memorial service at Century Cemetery, which was owned in the distant past by the Marlborough Congregational Church. This service is held to commemorate the forty-one black citizens who were denied entry into the cemetery for burial during the first half of the 1800s based on their race.

A self-guided candlelight viewing of all forty-one names. All are welcome to attend. I would encourage everyone to drop by and explore this area of our history!
