Grave Yard Walks
I want to thank Paul & Barbara for all the wonderful work they did this year on the Graveyard Walks... This is my third year as a "prominent person from the past" We on this side of the veil do not like the term "ghost" and I always have great time. Thank you for inviting me to play.. ~ Susan Jennings: 2011
The Graveyard Walks event began its history in 2001 and brings the history of our community into the present in a unique way. Held in October, this event is extremely popular and requires a reservation to participate.
If you are interested in attending any of the events please use our contact form to let us know.
Look for these historic figures to appear.
Characters expected to surface at the cemetery this year brothers Ray and Eldon Haskell, who both lost their lives in World War Two. Vera Brown, suspected of being a spy; John Taylor, a Navy submariner; and Emily Martin, a nurse.
Both walks will be followed by free homemade desserts at the Miles Thomas House (Senior Center) on Main Street, which will be transformed into a U.S.O. for the evening.
