Haints and Saints cemetery tour planned in Jefferson
JEFFERSON - Local figures from the Civil War to the early 20th century will tell their stories when the Crawford Long Museum Association and Jefferson Community Theatre presents the second Haints and Saints cemetery tours during the last weekend in October.
Moonlight guided tours will take attendees through downtown Jefferson and the Woodbine Cemetery, where actors in period costume will present dramatic first-person accounts of the lives of a half-dozen cemetery residents. The accounts, based on historic records, give first-person views of regional and local events and offer an alternative to typical Halloween activities.
The cost is $15 for adults and $10 for seniors and children (age 3 to 12) and reservations must be made in advance. Visit www.crawfordlong.org or call the Museum at 706-367-5307 for more information and to make reservations as each tour time is limited. Participants must be able to walk 5 city blocks. This event is suitable for children aged 6 and older.
