Church basement yields trove of headstones

I ran across a very cool article from Norwich, CT, this morning. It’s always been a fantasy to run across a stash of history like this.

Norwich – Several years ago, Christ Episcopal Church property warden Stanley Stanley was working on the gas furnace in the dirt basement when he felt a poke in the back.

He reached around and pulled a human femur out of the dirt, then a rib bone.

“I didn’t go digging around there anymore,” said Stanley, now retired at age 82.

On Tuesday, several volunteers were in the church basement, but instead of digging up bones they were after some of the best-preserved Colonial-era headstones in New England.
