Since 1995, the Cemetery Walk has come to play a pivotal role in bringing the community together and sharing the stories of local people from the past while emphasizing the historical significance of cemeteries.
This event serves as an invaluable learning resource for everyone who attends, including students. The Cemetery Walk is put on for thousands of students during the week, giving them the opportunity to engage with local history in a way that sticks with them. For the past few years, the Museum has waived all admission fees for student tours during our Evergreen Cemetery Walk. This allowed us to reach more than 2,000 students last year, many of whom would not have been able to attend otherwise due to financial constraints.
Ticket sales only cover about 1/3 of the program expenses. Please consider making an extra gift to support the Cemetery Walk, allowing us to keep students tours free and public tickets affordable.
