October 14 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Cemetery Walk is the perfect time to stretch your legs and learn about some little-known history of Johnson County. During this yearly event, visitors tour a Johnson Co. cemetery and learn the ins and outs of the lives of a select group of people who are buried there. This year’s Walk will be held at Ridgewood Cemetery in North Liberty. Tours start every 30 minutes.
An additional tour will be offered by local Grave Topics instructor Laurie Taylor. She will be speaking on headstone symbolism. More information on this topic soon.
Casting Call: The JCHS is seeking volunteers to interpret a character in the tour. Volunteers will be given a script (no memorization required) of the life of one resident in Ridgewood Cemetery and will interpret their story for each tour group. Dressing in period appropriate clothing is highly encouraged; we may be able to attire you if you don’t have anything to wear. Please contact the Event Planner at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer or if you have any questions.
