Cemetery tour on tap in Washington
Published 8:53 pm, Sunday, October 20, 2013
The sixth annual Washington Green Cemetery Tour will be held Oct. 25 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
A rain date of Oct. 27 is planned for the event that will start at Gunn Historical Museum on Wykeham Road.
Costumed guides will lead groups of visitors every ten minutes from the museum to the Washington Green Cemetery, where the town's departed citizens, portrayed by costumed actors, will be stationed at their gravestones to tell their tales of tragedy and triumph.
Tour groups will follow a path of 1,000 luminaries spanning a quarter mile through the cemetery and hear the dramatic stories of Washington's Swedish immigrants.
Donations will be accepted.
