The Farber Gravestone Collection is an unusual resource documenting gravestone sculpture, mostly prior to 1800. The late Daniel Farber of Worcester, Massachusetts, and his wife, Jessie Lie Farber, were responsible for the largest portion of the collection. These early stones are both a significant form of artistic creation and precious records of biographical information, such as name, death date of the deceased, stone location, and information concerning the stone material, iconography, the inscription, and (when known) the carver.
There are approximately 13,527 images in the collection.
