Concord Cemetery administrator Jill McDaniel-Huckins led a group from Concord Library to Old North Cemetery on a tour of historic markers on Tuesday evening. The group started at the library with a short lecture by McDaniel-Huckins and then walked over to the cemetery near Walker School and walked around learning the notable people buried there, including the 14th president of the United States, Franklin Pierce. Established in 1730, it is the oldest cemetery in Concord.
