2019 Cemetery Walk

October 13 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Come experience history in a new way at the most mysterious time of year. Meet some of Johnson County’s earliest residents at their final resting place. Emerging from the night in period costumes, they will tell tales of those buried in the East Union Mennonite Cemetery. Tours are every half hour; the last tour starts at 7:30.

This event is free and open to the public. Donations are welcome.

Unfortunately, Laurie Taylor will no longer be providing headstone symbolism tours this year. We’ll miss you, Laurie!

Parking and restrooms will be available at the East Union Mennonite Church. Treats and apple cider will be available too!

It’s recommended you bring a flashlight to this event.

If there are any more people out there who are interested in being a tour guide, please email programs@johnsoncountyhistory.org or call (319) 351-5738. The responsibilities of a tour guide are very simple. Guide a group of people to the next spirit? Easy!
