William Stives—A Living History

Join us to hear the living history of William Stives, presented live by actor Arthur Gregory Pugh. Come share William’s story. Takes place at the Stoutsburg Cemetery, Hopewell Township (off of Province Line Road). Join us for Stoutsburg Cemetery’s annual Memorial Day service. Steeped in rich history, the Stoutsburg Cemetery Association was officially founded as a burial ground for African American residents and veterans in 1858.

Having portrayed Sam Blackwell as part of The Spirits of Hopewell Valley celebration and Aaron Truehart at last year’s Hopewell Valley Heritage Weekend, Arthur is honored to return to pay tribute to another of Hopewell’s early settlers. Sponsored by the Stoutsburg Cemetery Association.
