One event on June 3, 2023 at 2:00 pm
Local historian and guide Kevin Coleman will interpret the family graveyard that was there before the cemetery, the funerary architecture and symbolism of all the monuments, the historic stone quarry at the rim, the history around the site, the geology of the location…and even what you see in the grand views.
Join me for 2 1/2 guided tours (that compliment the annual Memorial Day ceremonies) from 2pm to about 4pm on Sunday May 28th and Saturday June 3rd. (I will have an additional tour 2pm Monday May 29th, but that is already mostly full.)
The practical limit on the tour is about 25 people as we walk to the eastern corner. $10 for adults, $5 for students, and $15 for families (three to six family members including children). Pay “at the door” at the with cash or check.
You can make reservations at email@example.com, phone 740 / 775-4036, text 740 / 771-8574, or message from this Facebook page. If the weather is inclement, the tour will be rescheduled and those who have contacted me will be notified.
The tour begins near the Renick stone walls (two stars on the attached map), ends near the cell tower (near no. 4 on the map), and can be extended to the gazebo / bandstand (no. 6 on the map).
