The annual Echoes of the Past Cemetery Tours will be happening this week and next week at Buffalo's Willow Grove Cemetery.
Th Jim Gatchell Memorial Museum started these tours a number of years ago to give those interested a look back at Buffalo's past, its history and an understanding of former residents through a living-history lesson and tour of the cemetery.
Jennifer Romanoski, Museum Educator at the Gatchell Museum, explains more about the tours.
Local actors will be portraying all-new spirits this year, including Charles and Jenny Buell, a cowboy, Elizabeth Grubb, John “Posey” Ryan, Verna Keith Keays, Grace Irigaray, Katherine Marton, “Crazy Woman,” and Gertrude Gagnon.
The cost of the tour is $20 per person, and there are still spots available, although they are going fast. Tickets can be purchased at the museum. The tours will be offered August 11, 12, 13, and again on the 18, 19 and 20 beginning at dusk.
