Forest Hill Cemetery Tour
Saturday, September 24, 2016
10:30 - 12:30 pm
Tour begins at the main Broadway Street entrance at the cemetery office.
Opened in 1868, Forest Hill gradually absorbed all but two area cemeteries. The winding paths pass gentle hills, trees and natural growth that induce a sense of peace and tranquility. Civil War monuments, markers of artistic beauty and tombstones marking disasters and sorrow make this an interesting tour. Guides will provide interesting stories and poignant memories from over 150 years of community history.
