‘Walk Though Time’ at Niagara Cemetery
NIAGARA, Wis. – As part of the Niagara Centennial celebration, the Niagara Area Historical Society announces a “Walk Through Time” cemetery walk on Saturday, June 28, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Niagara Cemetery.
The walk will feature visits to 12 gravesites. For a complete list of all families participating in this year’s walk, go to the webpage at www.niagarawihistory.weebly.com
Admission is “donations only” with the proceeds going to support the Niagara Area Historical Society.
“The cemetery walk brings the voices of the past to life,” organizers said.
“People are invited to step back in time to meet some of Niagara’s most memorable residents. You can hear their personal stories told by a modern day citizen clad in period day dress as you stroll from gravesite to gravesite.”
Many of the portrayers are actual descendants of the individuals whose stories they tell.
“We will examine the roles that our Niagara residents played in town,” said a spokesperson.
“The Niagara Area Historical Society wants to make the citizens aware of the valuable cultural resources that can be found within the cemetery through living history. Not only is it a place for reflection and meditation, but also as a visible reminder of our history and heritage,” she added.
