Beechwood Cemetery’s Bilingual Historical Walking Tour – Life in 1867

September 10, 2017 - 14:00 - 16:00

Come and experience the stories of the people who lived in the year 1867 at Beechwood’s Annual Historical Walking Tour.

150 years ago, a sleepy lumber town was transformed into the capital of the newly created nation, Canada.  Come and hear the voices of those who participated in Confederation and witnessed the transformation of our city.

Share in the stories and lives of real individuals who held traditional roles in society, each shaping the country in their own way.  Actors will bring to life seven men and women who embody what life was like in the year 1867 followed by a light snack and period style dancing for your entertainment.

Don’t miss this stroll through beautiful and historic Beechwood, the National Cemetery of Canada.
