Interestingly, a stroll through the oldest sections of the cemetery will reveal grave markers dated ten, twenty, even thirty years before the establishment of the cemetery.

The tour will be held on Saturday, August 15th at 5:00 p.m. and will begin near the center of the cemetery. Tickets are $5 per person and can be purchased at the start of the tour.
