The Susquehanna County Historical Society will present a living history presentation at the Montrose Cemetery Friday, October 30 and Saturday, October 31 from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

 

The approximately 30-minute program will take people through the cemetery on a walking tour beginning at the cemetery gates along Lincoln Ave, just off of Cemetery St and Jackson St. It will be street parking so please be courteous and do not park in front of driveways to homes along those streets. We also ask you do not arrive any earlier then 10 minutes before the start of your tour to alleviate conjestion of parking on the street as well.

 

This will not be a “ghost walk” and will instead focus on the history of the cemetery and historical tales of the original settlers of the area.

 

Reservations are required and can be made in person at the Historical Society or any Susquehanna County Library location. There will be six tours both days from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. The tours will be limited to 10 people per tour. So be sure to sign up quickly so the time slot you want doesn't fill up before you get a chance! Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. 

 

A donation of $10 per adult and $5 per child is asked for at the time of reservation. *As this is a donation there will be no refund*

 

~~Hot beverages will be provided at the end of the tour. ~~

 

Those participating in the event must wear a mask and observe social distancing guidelines.

Sturdy shoes are also highly recommended.
