A ship carved into a grave stone

A Shipwreck Commemorated in Dedham

Dedham Historical Society & Museum board member Joan Pagliuca was interviewed on November 14th, 2019 by Boston Globe columnist Steve Annear about the history behind a curious gravestone monument in Dedham’s Old Village Cemetery. Our appreciation to Annear for covering the story and to resident Brian Keaney for sending Annear the query for his column. 

The article is part of a new Globe series where readers have their questions about quirky things around Boston investigated. Click here to read the article about the shipwreck Maritana and its connection to Dedham. It’s wonderful to have Dedham’s treasures recognized by a wider audience.
