Event Details

On Saturday, May 11, about forty people took the notable woman (or man) in their life on a walking tour of the notable women of Union Cemetery.

The male-centric culture of the late 1880s and early 1900s resulted in many women’s stories getting lost, or never being told at all. Not on our watch! Union Cemetery is full of strong, accomplished women of character. We celebrated their lives by telling their stories and placing a flower on their grave. Mike Roberts shared a little cemetery history along the way.

This Save the Graves free event was open to all ages. We’ll be scheduling more this summer.
