The dates of the tours are Saturday October 28 and then the following Saturday, November 4, both at 10:30 a.m., subject to change for inclement weather.
According to the announcement for the events on the City of Marietta website, “This season’s tours will focus on previously unseen images of the cemetery and veterans’ stories.”
The tours will be conducted rain or shine. The tours will take place over gravel and uneven pathways, so plan accordingly.
Refunds will only be given if the Marietta History Center cancels the tour.
“Established in the 1830s, the Marietta City Cemetery has a host of tales to tell, and a guided walking tour is the best way to experience them,” states the announcement. “Each tour has a different theme that will explore stories of Marietta’s constant residents.”
Tickets can be purchased on the Museum’s online store, at www.MariettaHistory.org. You can also find the link on the MHC Facebook page.
