Join us on this 90-minute guided walking tour, where you’ll learn about many people who were among the first to occupy the cemetery almost 150 years ago, including one young man whose death involved rolling pins. We’ll cover the first ten years of notable recorded adult burials.
The tour is Thursday, September 21 at 1:00 p.m. Arrive 15 minutes early to allow for parking and walking/shuttling from the entrance gate located at 1938 West Sheridan Street to the well house located in the center of the cemetery. Upon arrival, you will be directed where to park.
The tour is concentrated in the oldest part of the cemetery and might be a bit hilly. You are welcome to stay after the tour, if you would like to explore more of the beautiful grounds on your own.
