Spirits will come alive at Evergreen Cemetery on Saturday, Sept. 27. The Tioga County Historical Society (TCHS) will host the third annual cemetery walk telling the stories of people from this area’s past and the history of Evergreen Cemetery. Tours meet at the museum at 10 a.m., 11 a.m. and noon. This unique tour will include living history re-enactors portraying members of the county’s past.
Tours will last between one and a half to two hours each. Guests will meet inside the TCHS Museum at 110 Front St. in Owego before boarding a bus that will transport them to the cemetery.
Guests can meet Rikki Springsteed, who is compiling a history of Evergreen Cemetery, and browse the museum’s exhibits before and after the tour. Be prepared for the weather, as the tour will continue rain or shine. Good walking shoes are a must.
