Join us for this fun 10th Annual Washington Green Cemetery Tour event! Meet at the Museum where Tour Guides dressed in vintage attire will lead you along a path of 1,000 luminaries through the Cemetery to meet some of Washington’s unforgettable residents from the past. Unique, memorable and familiar citizens from the last two centuries are brought to life by costumed actors who tell the stories of their life; some amusing, some sad, some tragic — even horrific!
ABOUT THE TOUR
Cemetery Tour attendees should come to the Gunn Historical Museum and form a line to get numbered tickets for the tours, handed out on a first-come first-serve basis, starting at 6:15 p.m. on Oct. 27, and continuing through the evening until the tickets run out. Tours of the Cemetery depart from the Gunn Museum in groups of eighteen people every eight minutes between 6:30 and 8:30 p.m. and last approximately one hour. Unfortunately, tickets can not be reserved and specific times can’t be requested. While there is no fee to attend the Cemetery Tour, donations are greatly appreciated.
A Halloween themed movie will be shown in the Wykeham Room of the Gunn Library where attendees can wait inside for their tour group to depart. Visitors are encouraged to bring a flashlight, dress warmly, and wear comfortable walking shoes.
