Grandview Cemetery Walking Tour

May 24 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

A walking tour of Grandview Cemetery’s funerary architecture, history, and natural aspects

I can’t replicate the entire annual Memorial Day ceremonies in Chillicothe’s scenic landmark burial ground, but join me for my guided tour of it – with a nod to those buried there – 2pm to about 4pm this Sunday, May 24th, 2020.

Local historian and guide Kevin Coleman will speak on the graveyard that was there before the cemetery, the funerary architecture and symbolism in the monuments, the historic quarry at the rim, the history around the site, the geology of the location, and even what you see in the grand views.

Starting at the Renick stone wall, I will use my outdoor voice (and maybe a megaphone) so everyone can hear me as we stay safe in the fresh air and sunshine.  It will be $7 for adults, $5 for students, and $15 for families.

Reservations are not needed, but you can learn more on the Facebook event page <https://www.facebook.com/events/251242832754933/>.  Contact me at ihs@horizonview.net, 740 / 775-4036, or message from this Facebook page.
