Blossom Hill Cemetery, the little chapel on the hill

This little chapel is the Clara B. Perkins Memorial Chapel, and it dates back to 1904. Nine years after Blossom Hill Cemetery was established, the cemetery committee expressed the need for a chapel to hold burial services. The chapel was ultimately a generous gift from Concord philanthropist Miss Susan George Perkins, and named after her mother, Clara Bartlett Perkins. Both Susan and her mother are buried in Blossom Hill Cemetery.

“At one point or another, we’ve printed for almost every business in Concord”

Working in a city like Concord I sometimes feel like we are all occupying a single small-town block.

Public Art (and Opinion) Downtown

And Concord’s newest pieces sure have! Some have been big hits – like “American Dog” by Dale Rogers on the corner of N. Main and Centre St. But everyone loves dogs. That one is easy. Plus, that particular doggo is quite well known. Some have been harder for folks to figure out than others.
