Historic Cemetery Walking Tour
SATURDAY, October 27, 3:00-5:00 pm
Join us for our annual daylight walking tour of El Dorado’s most historic cemeteries!
Meeting at Sunset Lawns at 3:00pm and later continuing on to Belle Vista, participants in this year’s cemetery tour will once again be able to visit the grave sites and hear the stories of some of the town’s most interesting and unusual personalities from times past. Attendees will also learn about cemetery history and symbolism, discover how headstone designs tie into fraternal orders like the Odd Fellows and Woodsmen of the World, and hear about the origins of El Dorado's cemeteries. The tour is expected to last about 2 hours.
