Description: 

Every community has those untoward stories that were told in hushed tones, perhaps not suited for the ears of more sensitive listeners. Our 28th Annual Cemetery Walk will feature some of these tales of the macabre, the creepy, and the scandalous.

In addition to costumed actors at selected gravesites retelling the story of people interred there, trained docents will point out remarkable monuments and share the fascinating history of Forest Home Cemetery as they guide tour groups from grave to grave.

Meet inside the front gate of Forest Home Cemetery. Gates open at noon and the first tour departs at 12:30 p.m. The last tour will leave at 2 p.m. sharp. The tour takes about 2 hours. Tickets are $15 ($10 for members) and can be purchased on our website.
