The MetFern Cemetery Project

Originally published on 9/13/19

On Thursday, September 12, Gann Academy history students presented the culmination of their 2018-2019 work associated with the Fernald School: the MetFern Yizkor Project, a 298 page book with the stories of those that were buried in the 298 unmarked graves at the MetFern cemetery. In addition to the book, the students created markers to be displayed at the cemetery and have a website in-process to educate the public about the Fernald School, Metropolitan State Hospital, and the the MetFern cemetery. Thank you Ruderman Family Foundation for your support of this project.
