On Saturday, October 8th, not July 24 as it says in the poster, the old Walpole Cemetery will once again be visited by spirits of years past, and the spirits are just dying for company!
The Walpole Historical Society has been producing these tours since 2002, and each one has a different cast of characters from Walpole’s past anxious to talk about their lives with the audience.
The tour will meet at the Walpole Middle School front lawn at 2:00 pm, when the ‘Funeral Director’ will start the procession through the beautiful cemetery with its stone markers – some of which have been standing for 300 years – stopping along the way to talk to long-departed citizens from Walpole’s past. For those who haven’t yet taken the tour, we urge you to come and see for yourself how Walpole’s history comes alive on this one day each year.
There is no admission. Refreshments will be served. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes, and come prepared for all weather – the tour goes on rain or shine! We all look forward to seeing you.
